Style properties


Configured layer files will be used with the upload of local geodata if the layer file geometry type and renderer (e.g. UniqueValueRenderer) matches with the uploaded file. The uploaded file may contain its own style already (e.g. layer packages). In this case, WebOffice 10.9 SP1 will provide both styles for the uploaded layer with its own style as the default thematic mapping and the configured style as second thematic mapping.

In case the uploaded file does not have its own style, the matching configured style will become the default thematic mapping and any additional configured style will be available as second, third, etc., thematic mapping.



Please note that WebOffice 10.9 SP1 does not support all symbols available in ArcMap. The supported symbols are listed in the chapter Simple Thematic Mapping.

See chapter Add Data for details about the tool configuration in WebOffice author standalone.

See chapter Add Local Geodata for details about uploading local geodata in the WebOffice core client.


From WebOffice 10.9 SP1 it is possible to add upload labels, if this is defined in the style. To do this, it is necessary to specify a label field in the text string on the Labels tab of the layer properties in ArcMap.



More than one fields at the Expression must not be set. Advanced has to be deactivated.
