I have a question about applying spatial filter tool in Insights for ArcGIS.

We’ve noticed that the result of this tool in Insigts and in Arcgis Pro or ArcGIS Online differs. The source data of both layers is in decimal degrees - WGS84.


ArcGIS Pro returns 3860 intersecting features, Insights returns the same result only if data published as service in decimal degrees (WGS 84).

 Results of Select by location in ArcGIS Pro.


Insights - layers are published in WGS84.


If service with the same data is published in Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere – it returns 1581 feature.

Insights - layers are published in Web Mercator Auxillary Sphere. 



What does it mean?
