Stored Displays in the Field

You may need to create or modify stored displays for use in the field. When doing this, keep the following in mind:

  • Modify the size and color of symbology to make map features easily viewed on a small screen in the field.

  • Remove extraneous layers from stored displays to decrease the amount of time it takes to load.

  • Use simple symbology to increase performance.

  • Do not use Definition Queries (unless absolutely necessary) to increase performance.

  • If the stored display(s) and/or document(s) to be accessed by the field user have any broken data sources, you may delete those layers and re-save the stored display. This just means that the stored display/document contains layers that the backdrop does not. These layers can be removed from the stored display/document.

Geodatabase Replication: Copy the finished Login database to the appropriate sub-directory in the Base Path directory on the Replication Server. It is from this location that the Login database will be initially distributed (and permanently maintained) to client machines using a Directory Replica. Refer to the Geodatabase Replication section.
