I am struggling with maintaining a reasonable file size when creating a map service/feature layer. I will begin with saying that I am very new to this, and have only been working with ArcGIS Online for a couple of weeks now.
I am creating a pgdb that includes my parcel base as a feature class. This includes a set of data that has been requested by our appraisal staff so that they can perform different queries in a web application. After being published as a map service, the total size is 285Mb which is far bigger than I would like to have it since it is eating up 70 credits a month for storage.
Is there a simple way to compact this data? I have tried using a zipped database, which compacts the data to 70Mb, but when it is used as a map service it returns to it's original 285Mb size.
Unfortunately I cannot attach the data due to it's contents.
As always, thank you for any suggestions or insight in advance!
