ArcGIS Server Vector Tile Service

Since WebOffice 10.9 R3 it is possible to integrate Vector Tile Services into WebOffice flex. In contrast to cached Map Services Vector Tile Services are not based on raster technology, but on vectors. Therefore they are calculated faster and need less disk space.

Selection on all visible layers?

When using the option All visible Layers in the Client all Layers visible in the current scale and set to visible are taken into consideration.

A Layer configuration is not required, the ArcMap Layer Properties get used instead (Layer Name, visible Fields, Field order).

Max. extent for layer display

With query layers, the map area cannot be defined manually because it is always calculated automatically. Furthermore, the map area can also change dynamically by capturing additional features afterwards.

By selecting the value Service or Project it can be guaranteed that in WebOffice also newly captured objects are displayed outside the previous display area.
