I worked with ArcGIS for Desktop 10.3.1 to do some geomorphologic analysis, which resulted in a few raster layers (all in GeoTIFF format).

I want to publish them to ArcGIS online, in order to make a Web App for presenting those maps.

I uploaded the GeoTIFF rasters as a Tile Package (Create Map Tile Package function) and used Publish to convert it to a Tile Layer (online). All good so far.

The problem is I can't choose which raster to display in an online map. It only shows me the one which had its check mark on, when I created the Tile Package in ArcGIS for Desktop... I can't choose another one from the list, in order to make it visible (see the picture).

Am I doing something wrong or is it a known limitation of ArcGIS Online?

I am using an Esri Developer account on Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0, Windows 10 Home 64 bit.

  • This is cooking all the tiles in the same cache and not creating individual layers that can be checked on/off. You will want to upload each layer as a separate tpk. – Russ Roberts Sep 6 '16 at 12:58
  • That's actually the issue I'm facing. The Create Map Tile Package (Data Management) tool doesn't allow me to create separate caches for each layer. The only alternative is to make a separate .mxd for each layer. Which is kind of tedious if you have many layers. – Beniamin Stoica-Fuchs Sep 7 '16 at 9:15

    You could do this workflow in ArcMap(or Pro) Run - Manage Tile Cache tool on the layer, then run Export Tile Cache tool and select the output as tile package. This will work around having to create a separate mxd for each layer. – Russ Roberts Sep 7 '16 at 13:47
