00221: Feature layer is displaying more than 2000 features

Web feature layers are currently limited in their scalability in 3D, so only smaller datasets—those displaying fewer than 2,000 features—can be shared.


  • Create a definition query for the layer to limit the number of features being displayed. For more information, see Display a subset of features in a layer.

    A definition query only limits the number of features the layer displays. All records in the layer will be copied to the server when the web scene is shared.

  • Remove the layer if it is not needed.

More information

Web scenes are interactive displays of geographic information that are useful when you need to expose 3D data on the web for visualization and analysis.

You can author global scenes with existing web layers or with data layers that are published into web layers when you share a web scene.

For more information, see Author a web scene.
