About the Layer Selector

When using the Layer Selector with a Map Service, geoProspector displays all the layers within the Map Service, including grouped layers. Simply select the layer you want to download from the selector.

NOTE: If you have already defined an output Feature Class and select a different layer, geoProspector will prompt you, if the layer name does not match the Feature Class name, before exporting to ensure you do not write data into the wrong Feature Class.

About the Feature Count

Every time you change a Layer or update the Advanced Settings, the Feature Count will update displaying the number of features you will be downloading.

If you Feature exceeds 100,000 records, geoProspector will display a warning icon. geoProspector has a maximum threshold of 250,000 features. At this number, you should look at alternative ways of acquiring this data.
