Fetching base map information

Question asked by farschr on Oct 26, 2015

I have a bathymetry map that is a map of ocean depths - the deeper the blue the deeper the ocean. The map is provided as a .mxd file. I can open this file in ArcGIS Desktop and I'm able to click on it using the Identify cursor to query for depth at the clicked location.

 

Next I rendered this map into a '.tpk' file that I open using ArcGISLocalTiledLayer in ArcGIS Runtime. So my question is: can I get depth information in ArcGIS Runtime from the base map like was I able to get in ArcGIS Desktop?

 

One idea I've heard is to create a feature table in ArcGIS Desktop containing depth information and using that for depth information in ArcGIS Runtime; but I was curious if there is a way to get it directly from the base map - either in this release (10.2.6) or in a future release (Quartz).

 

Thanks!
