Tips and Tricks when using a map created from ArcGIS Viewer for Flex

Here's a couple general tips and tricks when using a webmap created using  ArcGIS Viewer for Flex

  • The more you utilize the map data viewer, the refresh and drawing time will decrease. Your computer’s web browser will cache some of the data so next time you draw that area it should perform quicker.
  • Zoom into an area of interest before you check the data layers for display.
  • Only choose 4 or 5 data layers to display at any one time.  Displaying all the layers at once will tend to slow down the refresh time.
  • Pressing F5 will zoom to the original extent as when initially opened and refresh all the layers.
