Style lines

When you add data from SharePoint to a map, Esri Maps for SharePoint creates a layer and displays the data using a default style. These layers, and certain layers added from ArcGIS, can be styled using different symbols, colors, and grouping.

One way to style a line layer is using a single line symbol to represent all of the features in the layer. Another way is to divide the line features into groups and style each group with a different color. Alternatively, if your data has numeric fields, you may choose to style each group with a different-sized line. For example, you could use different line colors or sizes to show roads classified by traffic volume.

As you modify the style options for your layer, the map automatically updates to reflect your settings.

For more information on styling layers, see Feature display and style.
