Attached is an example set of filters and symbol color sliders i'm putting together for an app. Looking for community input to how best accomplish this with the esri api. the data is all a point feature class. I assume the best way to do this would be consuming a feature service, not a map service? would it matter performance wise with potentially a couple thousand points on the map?
