Create the Single Layer Background Maps To Use with the Example Dataset

  4. Click Add Layer.

    The Edit Map Layer Settings dialog opens.

  5. Click the down arrow next to the URL field and select Add DPR Layer.

    The Choose a document for the layer dialog opens.

  6. In the dialog, navigate to the following folder: dmsSystem\Spatial\Background Map DPR Files

    Take a moment to look at the descriptions for each of the documents in this folder.

    • The first value tells you which background map the document is for.
    • The second value tells you what order to add the documents in.
    • The third and fourth values tell you the minimum and maximum scale values, respectively.
  7. Select the document that has the description Natural City - Layer 1 - 0_0 and click Open.
  8. Click OK in the Edit Map Layer Settings dialog.
