Is there a difference between a Map Service and a Feature Service?  Our organization website has had an interactive map running off of ArcGIS Server for 2 years, but now we're transferring to ArcGIS Online....our developer is having problems pointing the website to the Feature Service URL link, and says we need for it to be a Map Service....is this right?  Is there a difference, or is there a setting I'm just not clicking when publishing the layers?  Thanks,  Jill
