Hi Russ. I am working on a damage collection system and would like to show the current locations of our emergency responders rather than a collection of points showing where they have been. This info would be displayed in our emergency operations center as well as to our decision makers using Operations Dashboard. I was hoping you were able to find out from the dashboard team if displaying current location rather than a collection of points was possible. Thanks.
Was there any solution to this either in a web map or dashboard? A regular filter won't work but I could see something like a definition expression that could work...however I'm wondering if anyone has found a solution or if you got an update on this (even though the thread is old).
currently location tracking is still just a bread crumb trail and there is not an out of the box solution that will only display the most recent point in that track log.
So I have found a solution to this problem, however you have to add a definition expression to the JSON and you have to have standardized query set to false on the server (or ArcGIS Online) to be able to accomplish it. I have successfully got it working on both a hosted tracking layer and one in ArcGIS for Server (with an enterprise geodatabase backend) which is it's own hack. However there is something Portal that is blocking the advanced query. So a query can solve this problem, but you are editing things like the JSON at your own risk. We do have a customer who is successfully doing this though.
Could you elaborate on this a bit more? Can you access the json from the layer properties in AGOL? And what does the query look like? Thanks, cob
