I have a hosted feature layer that has several points and associated lat/lons. One of the points is in the wrong location. So I went into the "Data" table and updated the lat/lons manually. However when I "visualise" the layer with the new lat/lon it is still in the same place.
Why has the layer not inherited the lat/lon update ? And put the point in the correct position.
When a hosted feature layer is created, the geometry and attribute values are separate as ArcGIS Online assigns XY values to points. So when you updated the attribute table, the geometry was not also updated. A possible workflow that can be used to update geometry with a specified Lat/Long is below.
Hope this helps!
