Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am managing an ArcGIS service that is used by Geocortex Essentials as a web map app for some users. The feedback I have got so far is that it doesn't refresh fast enough. I'm looking for some answers to these questions:

  1. Do labels with a mask on them draw slower?
  2. What point symbol draws faster: Character or Simple?
  3. Does having a label only draw in its polygon result in slower labelling?

Hey bud, I'm glad I got you finally on this site, it's great! You need to phrase your question a little more like a question and less general. –  Cody Brown May 7 '13 at 14:38

Have you seen Esri's presentation on best practices for map services? –  user3461 May 7 '13 at 14:42

Welcome to GIS SE. Additional information such as how many and what type of layers the service contains, as well as how the service is used (as a basemap? for example) by GeoCortex will yield better answers. –  user3461 May 7 '13 at 14:45
