Features Tracking

NOTE It may not be possible to implement each and every feature and if so the documentation will be updated accordingly. Each feature which is implemented has a tick mark (✔️) next to it. Any description you find in this section is directly taken from the esri-leaflt API reference.


Layers provide visualization capabilities for data hosted in Feature Services, Map Services and Image Services.



Tasks are wrappers for commonly used API methods on ArcGIS services. They expose commonly used parameters to make them more accessible to Leaflet.
