Previously the default extent on the map when you viewed a dataset on our open data site seemed to work without issue, the extent was appropriate for each dataset. Now we have a zoomed out globe on everything.. we have switched data sources recently but this was an issue before that change.
I've been trying to find out where its set but can't find the answer, was hoping it was in the item in AGOL but they all zoom to the right place without any issue so its obviously not that.
Solved! Go to Solution.
@AnneTetley @VanDerWielenTonyJ-DOT @NCESOpen_Data sorry to hear you're all continuing to observe extent issues. We made an update a couple of months back to give preference to item extents when they exist. You can edit this on the item level in ArcGIS Online under settings:
If you've already tried this (as it sounds like you have @AnneTetley) then I would have to investigate further. Would you be able to forward a link to an item with an incorrect extent?
Hi Anne Tetley thanks for bringing this to our attention, we'll investigate what might be going on and get back to you quickly.
Still working on isolating the issue, will report back.
Thanks Brian, if you need any more info let me know.
Hi Anne Tetley apologies for the delay here, this was big one to tackle...fix coming out on Tuesday 🙂
I've been fighting this for years! I want the extent of my item (aka map service) to be honored! Not some unknown extent that is irrelevant to my data!
That's fantastic Brian, thank you so much for following up on it.
Brian Rollison - We're seeing this same issue in our Hub. The initial extent for our items isn't based on the features in the layer. We tried updating the extent in the feature layer settings but no dice. Feel free to have a look at our hub to see what I'm talking about: https://geohub.roundrocktexas.gov
we're looking into this! apologies for the issue
ps nice looking site!
