Setting which layers are selectable in ArcMap?

Setting which layers are selectable in ArcMap?

I cannot figure out how to toggle selectable layers in ArcMap 10.

In 9.3, I remember being able to choose from a list which layers I wanted to be able to select features from in the map.

Let's say I'm editing two different feature classes for a building - 'FireExtinguishers' and 'EvacuationRoutes'.

While editing, I don't want to accidentally select the 'Rooms' feature class.

I want to be able to turn off the selectability of 'Rooms', but the only way I know how to change this is to right-click a layer in the Table of Contents and choose Selection -> Make This The Only Selectable Layer.

I would like to have finer control over what layers are and are not selectable.

Does anyone know how to do this?

In the Table of Contents window, there is a button across top titled "List By Selection". Clicking this button toggles the Table of Contents into a mode that lets you change the selectablity of each layer in your dataframe.

You probably already figured this out, but in case someone else comes across it, you can click the small selection icon to the right of the layer you want to make selectable (or not selectable). See the red arrow:

The "Set Selectable Layers" option is still available in ArcGIS 10, you just need to add it like you would a custom tool:

Click the Customize menu > Customize Mode > Commands tab. Type "set selectable layers" in the "show commands containing" search box, and drag and drop the Set Selectable Layers command on to your Selection menu.

Configure a map image layer

When you configure a map image layer, you can set many properties of its underlying map service, including drawing behavior, supported user operations, and the way server resources are allocated to the service. Configuration is divided into three areas: layers, parameters, and pooling. This workflow explains how to modify the default configuration of a map image layer. To begin the sharing process, set general properties, and share your layer, see Share a map image layer.

If you are configuring a hosted map image layer (a map image layer published from a web feature layer), see the configuration limitations.

Intro to layers

The layer is the most fundamental component of a Map. It is a collection of spatial data in the form of graphics or images that represent real-world phenomena. Layers may contain discrete features that store vector data or continuous cells/pixels that store raster data.

Maps may contain different types of layers. For a broad overview of each layer type available in the API, see this table in the class description for Layer.

All layers inherit properties, methods and events from Layer. Some of these common properties are discussed in this tutorial. To learn about properties specific to different layer types, search the samples for that layer type (e.g. SceneLayer).

Prior to completing the following steps, you should be familiar with views and Map. If necessary, complete the following tutorials first:

1. Create a Map, a SceneView and a checkbox input HTML element.

Create a basic Map and add it to a SceneView instance. Your JavaScript may look something like the code below:

Add a checkbox element to the body of your HTML. The purpose of this element will be discussed later in the tutorial.

2. Create two layers using TileLayer

Create two instances of TileLayer prior to the code you wrote for creating a map and view. To do this, you must require the esri/layers/TileLayer module and specify the url property on the layer. The url property must point to a cached map service either hosted on ArcGIS Server or Portal for ArcGIS.

All layers used for accessing ArcGIS services have the url property, which must be set to render features in the view. In this sample we'll create layers for streets and highways using the Esri World Transportation service and a service containing data about housing density in New York City.

3. Set additional properties on the layers

You may set additional properties on the layers including an id, minScale, maxScale, opacity, and visible. These may either be set in the constructor or directly on the instance at another point in your application.

We'll add an id to each layer and set the opacity on the transportation layer.

The id uniquely identifies the layer, making it easy to reference in other parts of the application. If this isn't set directly by the developer, then it is automatically generated when the layer is created.

The minScale and maxScale properties control the visibility of the layer at various scales. Using these properties can improve app performance at certain scales and enhance the cartography of the map. The visible property is true by default.

4. Add the layers to the map

Layers may be added to the map in several ways. These are all discussed in the documentation for Map.layers. In this sample we'll add each layer to the map in a different way.

Add the housing layer to the map's constructor.

Add the transportation layer to the map using map.layers.add().

Now both layers should be visible in the view.

5. Work with a layer's visibility

Use the addEventListener method to listen to a change event on the checkbox element created in the first step. When the box is checked on and off it will toggle the visibility of the transportation layer on and off. Like visible , any property of any layer may be set directly on the layer instance. This is accomplished in the snippet below.

Even though the layer is not visible to the view in this sample, it still exists as part of the map. Therefore, you can still access all of the properties of the layer and use them for analysis even though the user may not see the layer rendered in the view.

6. Understanding LayerViews

The Layer object manages geographic and tabular data published as a service. It does not handle rendering the layer in the View. That is the job of the LayerView. A Layer's LayerView is created just before it renders in the view. When working with FeatureLayers, the corresponding FeatureLayerView can provide the developer with access to the graphics rendered in the view related to that layer's features.

In this step, we'll listen for the view's layerview-create event and print the LayerViews of the housing and the transportation layers so you can explore their properties in the console. Notice that we'll use the id we created for each layer in step 3 to get the desired layers. In addition to a map's operational layers, this event fires for basemap layers and elevation layers.

Use the C# API

Learn how to use the C# API to use ArcGIS data and other geospatial content within a scene.

To start using the API, create a new script by selecting Assets > Create > C# Script from the main menu bar, or by pressing the Create Menu plus sign icon located in the Project window.

The new script will be created in whatever folder you currently have selected in the Project window. The new script file name will be highlighted, prompting you to enter a new name.

When you double-click the script, it will be opened in a text editor. By default, Unity will use Visual Studio, but you can select any editor you like from the External Tools preferences (go to Unity > Preferences).

You can find the C# API sample scenes in the APIScene folder under the Samples folder for both High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP) and Universal Render Pipeline (URP). To access the folder, go to Assets > ArcGISMapsSDK > Samples in the Project window. Select HDRP or URP to find APIScene folder according to your project's render pipeline.

Review the first three steps from the Get started page to ensure your development environment is set up correctly.

Namespaces are containers of the classes that help organize the scripts. When you create a new C# script in Monodevelop, two namespaces are included at the top: using UnityEngine and using System.Collection . You can access all classes of these namespaces in your script.

To access the classes, add these namespaces to the beginning of the script:

Adding biographical information about yourself helps others learn more about you, your groups, and the content you've shared. Your profile can connect you with others who have similar interests and establish your authority in geographic information, map design, app development, and so on. It can also promote interest in joining your groups and using maps and apps you've shared. It's useful to include contact information and your areas of expertise and interests.

It's also useful to include a thumbnail image such as a picture of yourself, a logo, or anything that represents you. Your image should be 150 pixels wide by 150 pixels high in a web file format such as PNG, GIF, or JPEG. The maximum file size is 1 MB. If your image is a different dimension, it is automatically resized to 150 by 150 and may appear warped.

You may not be allowed to edit your bio depending on the security settings for your organization.

Cara mengatasi layer hilang saat meyimpang dokumen ArcMap ArcGIS (mxd)

Pikir saya, memang ekstensi produk tersebut sangat banyak jenisnya, namun ternyata permasalahan itu bukanlah pada ekstensi, melainkan cara pemakaian saja. Tanpa ekstensi jelas kita bisa melakukannya.

Oleh karena itu saya berpikir, mungkin ada baiknya kalau saya share saja caranya disini.

Seringkali diantara kita saat saving dokumen ArcMap (.mxd) untuk diberikan kepada rekan lain kemudian saat dibuka di dekstop yang lain, data layernya hilang.

Untuk mengatasi file mxd yang hilang path sumbernya, ada 2 cara :

  • Kalau tau folder sumber datanya
    • Dalam arc catalog, Klik kanan di mxd document, pilih Set Data Source. Lalu arahkan dataset ke path data sbenarnya (data pada komputer yang sedang digunakan), kita bisa mengarahkan path secara banyak sekaligus.
    • Kalau tidak tau persis sumber datanya
      • Buka dokumen mxd dengan Arcmap, lihat di barisan layer, tekan icon tanda seru (yang menandakan missing path) lalu arahkan ke path sebenarnya dengan cara browse folder.

      Cara ke-2 memang terlalu capek dilakukan apalagi kalau dataset di mxd jumlahnya banyak. Namun keduanya bisa digunakan sebagai alternatif.

      Kenapa ini bisa terjadi ?

      Hal itu disebabkan oleh alamat data layer yang berubah. Saat dokumen mxd berpindah tempat, data layer yang ada didalamnya belum tentu berpindah tempat karena file mxd dan file layer (yang dapat berupa shapefile maupun raster) merupakan data yang berbeda. Sehingga saat meng-copy data arcmap kita biasa melakukannya bebarengan dengan meng-copy data file layernya juga.

      Saat mxd dibuka, mxd meminta alamat data layer yang baru, apabila alamat ini di set absolut, maka akan terjadi ‘missing layer file’.

      Tips dari saya. Tidak usah kita menggunakan cara lama dalam menyimpan file mxd untuk keperluan transaksi data.

      Esri telah menyediakan pilihan penyimpanan yang lebih mudah, yaitu package. Untuk alternatif penyimpanan yang akan ditransaksikan bisa menggunakan map package (.mpk).

      Apa kelebihan map package ?

      Rekan-rekan tidak perlu lagi meng-copy data file layer saat bertransaksi data. Map package telah mem-package itu semua menjadi satu file data compact (mxd dan shapefile-shapefilenya jadi satu). Saat kita mau membuka lagi di dekstop yang berbeda, file itu akan ter-esktrak membuat folder relatif yang berisikan file-file data layer.

      Bagaimana cara membuat map package?

      Saat data sudah siap untuk disimpan, Klik File > Share > Map Package (.mpk)

      Geographic Information Science information and support

      A wealth of spatial data, suitable for many different applications at various scales, is available on the internet. If you are using ArcGIS 10.x, a good place to start is ArcGIS online:

      If you click on the triangle to the right of the Add Data button (the yellow diamond with a black rectangle on top), you are presented with a drop-down menu. Here you may select local data, a basemap from ESRI, or other data layers available on ArcGIS Online. The Add Data… option lets you select files from a local drive or network share.

      We hope to offer links to data layers for the region in the near future, but a couple of good places to start to acquire your own GIS layers include:

      The Center for Shared Solutions is the official home of GIS data for Michigan. At the Geographic Data Library you can find layers partitioned by state, watershed, county, and school district. You can also search by theme (layer type, such as aerial imagery or bedrock geology) or search by metadata. Metadata is “data about data”. A metadata file lists important information about a layer, including who created the layer, how current the information is, the coordinate system and datum used by the layer, details about any attributes (data fields), and contact information for the person or entity that produced the data.

      2) The Geospatial Data Gateway, provided by the NRCS, FSA, and RD.

      The Geospatial Data Gateway (GDG) has data for more than just Michigan. You can select data by state, county, bounding rectangle (latitude and longitude coordinates that describe a study area’s extent), or by using an interactive map to identify a study area, anywhere in the 50 US states or other US territories.

      The GDG has the most recent nationwide aerial imagery available, as well as base geography, watershed data, topographic maps, digital elevation models, land cover data, and climate information.

      You will need to provide an email address to use the GDG, as layers are ‘custom packaged’ for each order. The wait time for downloads depends on the amount of data you choose to download, as well as the number of other users on the system.

      The National Map houses the most up-to-date geospatial data from the USGS. It has an interface similar to the GDG’s, with a smaller set of layers available. The National Map is where all topographic map updates will are now published.

      4) Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data from the USGS

      DEM files, previously available from, have been moved to the National Map
      You may also find data you need at NOAA’s Digital Coast, which houses LIDAR-derived elevation data for (select) coastal counties in the US.

      5) A good starting point for satellite imagery for Michigan is MichiganView. This site contains user-contributed images for the region, and is managed by staff at the Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI).

      6) Pre-formatted 2010 Census data can be downloaded from ESRI’s Census 2010 page.

      7) Historical (census) data layers may be found at the National Historical GIS. If it’s historical topi maps you need, see the USGS Historical Topographic Map Explorer, where you can view or download scanned topo maps.

      8) Natural Earth provides public domain base maps at various scales (1:10M, 1:50M, 1:110M). Both raster and vector data are available.

A simple yet powerful management solution, RoadMatrix™ provides a systematic, data-driven method of road condition data collection, storage, analysis, and modelling. It supports your decision-making when managing resources across a pavement network.

      Leveraging over three decades of pavement research and pavement engineering experience, RoadMatrix™ was developed by engineers to support better investment decisions and meet your pavement performance objectives within budgetary, legislative, and other constraints. It’s a comprehensive tool that helps you plan based on three fundamental questions: What do I own? What is the current condition? How do I manage this network in the most cost-effective manner?

      Pavement asset owners can start the analysis with a basic amount of data and include more data over time to refine the asset management plan. As more data is added, the system grows and evolves. Asset management plan treatments are selected according to engineering principals to increase benefits and reduce costs.

      RoadMatrix™ provides plans that justify budget requests, showing which strategies will keep your pavement network in serviceable condition over a given period of time—for the least cost.

      Managing your pavement assets

      A logically intuitive interface provides instant access to the network information. You can view and update information by street, district, parish, functional classification, and more. Store roadway geometry, traffic information, structural composition, and other attributes.

      Aggregate your pavement inspection and work history data to view the current condition of your network. Understand the condition of any road, functional classification, ward, or parish today, and use the deterioration models to predict where it will be over the next 5, 10, or 20 years.

      You can link geo-referenced right-of-way (ROW) images to RoadMatrix™ and access them through the mapping feature to create a virtual street view of the network. Complete virtual field trips, pre-engineering reviews, and more.

      RoadMatrix™ supports roadway and right-of-way assets such as signs, pavement markings, guardrails, curbs, gutters, and fire hydrants.
