10040: Layer uses representations

Your map layer uses cartographic representations for symbology. Representations offer tighter control of symbolization but will decrease performance in many circumstances due to the logic required to maintain such control. For this reason, cartographic representations are recommended only for cached map services.


First, check the drawing performance of your basemap layer in ArcMap or your map service in the Preview window. See Working with basemap layers or Publishing map services for more information.

More information

Representations provide advanced capabilities for symbolizing your data. Some of these capabilities provide fine-grained control of drawing but can decrease performance. For more information on representations, see the topic What are representations?
