I am very confused because it is only with a certain layer. When I try to open this particular feature layer in Desktop ArcMap will crash. This feature layer has customized symbology, could it be because of this?
as in layer... do you mean an *.lyr file. If so, then is is highly likely
I mean this (a feature layer) -- it will not open in desktop.
opens in the map viewer...
totallllly killed 10.6 while it was opening. The quickest demise I have encountered
Nice symbols though in the map viewer.
I will have to defer to those that web layers
Thank you, what do you mean about defer to those web layers? I would like to be able to view this layer in ArcMap Desktop.
... defer to those (that do) web layers... I assumed that it had been packaged for use on the web... hence it worked in the viewer.
If it were a *.lyr file, then I presume it would have been packaged with its reference data...otherwise, I would have expected a zipped shapefile or a featureclass in a geodatabase. not something that opens up where it did.
Okay, thank you for explaining. Is there any way to download it and open it in ArcMap Desktop? Other feature layers I created on ArcGIS Online will open in Desktop :/
It is some Rest thing... check out the associated page https://services8.arcgis.com/UT5WPtsyyxzDrV2P/ArcGIS/rest/services/GNP_gdb/FeatureServer/0
again, I don't do web stuff, so maybe someone else will weigh in, or contact the author or leave a comment
Okay, yeah I hosted the feature layer with the original data.
Do you have access to ArcGIS Pro? It has no problem in reading the layer:
No ... didn't try it in Pro, Cora said ArcMap.
I wonder why the package would open in pro and not 'map?
Beats me too. Just suggesting Pro since it has a much better integration with portal and most ArcMap users should have access to ArcGIS Pro. Best thing is to log a support case and let Esri dig in to this.
Edit: just for the record, I also tried to open it and it crashed my ArcMap session too.
Nope I do not! But that is interesting to know. I ended up recreating the layer in Arcmap using some better symbols I downloaded from the NPS site. My goal was to host the layer as a feature service so I wanted to upload it back online from ArcMap but since it would crash the program, I couldn't do that. Thanks for both of your help in this!
Retrieving data ...
