Hello CartoTalk Members, 


I am having trouble with my ArcGIS map service and managing the map cache tiles from that map service. I have a map service, here, which I am using to overlay on a National Geographic basemap. You can see a generic preview of my problem in the ArcGIS JavaScript API viewer


It seems that the cache tile boundaries of large-scales (1:288,895 / 1:144,447 / 1:72,223 / ETC.) are clipping the county boundary (polygon) feature class and dynamic labels at smaller-scale zoom levels. (See the real problem here - not including the duplication of labels problem near cache tile boundaries).


And I can't figure out why the counties are getting cut off! I've tried changing my extent in the Data Frame, changing the extent in the Manage Map Server Cache Tiles tool properties, updating extent by using the county boundary (polygon) feature class [see image attached], and so forth...


I need some help to understanding why?!?


I have attached screen shots of my settings in my cache tile manager and map service properties.

Hi jeremywgoldsmith,


My friend also have similar problem in ArcGIS map service before.

He don't know how to setup the parameter and choice a suitable extent in the tile map. 

It's confuse user to generate cache map. 

As I know my friend use cache generator to create his map tile by SuperGIS Desktop.   

Cache Generator quickly creates cached map in STC format.


You can try it. :D


Best regards,
