Field Value

Text to acknowledge the use of the Layers underlying data.


Layer attribution is text that acknowledges the use of a layers underlying data; usually this text will credit the data owner. The text will cycle, with the attribution text of other layers in the map, at the lower right of the map display.

PackageLayer and ServiceLayer may contain existing attribution applied when the owner of the data published the Layer package or GIS service. In order to preserve existing attribution, it is not possible to change this property for these Layer types. Use the Layer.CanChangeAttribution property to check if attribution can be applied to a Layer.
