Esri Map
This Block allows you to integrate an Esri Map into the page. An Esri Map has additional features to a regular map such as allowing you to visualize additional geographical information, terrain formation, or topographical information for a given area.

Allow pan and rotate

Adds a button to the map which allows the user to rotate the map.

Longitude, Latitude, Height, and Tilt Angle

The map will load the location specified with Longitude, Latitude, Height, and Tilt Angle.

Behavior

Use Variables

This allows you to choose between manually entering a value for the API Key or selecting from a static variable.

API Key

The API key is used to get the private feature layers. For more details, visit the official Esri map documentation.
The API Key property is required for the Esri Map when there are feature layers added.
This will add a button on the map and give the option to change the Base Map layout.

Allow Show Current Location

This will show the user's current location on the map. Requires the location of the device.

Feature Layers

A Feature Layer is a single layer overlaid on the base map that can be created in a variety of ways and display different visualizations. Spatial feature layers include features that use Geometry and allow you to render the scene in either 2D or 3D. These features also provide more information about the real world which can be displayed through pop-up windows within the scene. Non-spatial feature layers do not provide this information about geographical features.

Markers Data Source

Mode

This can be changed to either use Static Items or a Dynamic Data Source. In both cases, markers need to be configured in the Data section. If the static items option is chosen, markers for locations can be entered manually under the Data section. If the Dynamic Data Source option is chosen, marker locations coming from the Data Source can be used.

Data

Markers for locations can be manually added and they will show on the map. Actions are triggered when you click on a marker on the map. Markers are entered by Longitude and Latitude. Markers can also have a text label that will be shown on top of the marker.
