Your map contains time-enabled layers, however, your map is not time enabled. In this case all the features of time-enabled layers will draw by default.
- Use the Time Slider to enable time on your map.
- Alternatively, do nothing if you want to display all the features of time-enabled layers currently displayed in your map.
When a map contains visible, time-enabled layers and the map itself is not time enabled, all the features of the time-enabled layers will draw by default. This will be the default display of the service when the map is published.
When a map is time enabled and published, the default display of the service will show only the features of time-enabled layers that fall within the time extent specified in the Time Slider for the map at the time of publishing.
In some cases the default view may display no features for time-enabled layers. This occurs when there are no features within the time extent specified when the map was published. Make sure you view the map before publishing to ensure that the default display is acceptable.
If you are using a time-aware client, you can specify time intervals in order to see subsets of features of the map service's time-enabled layers. However, if your client is not time aware, such as ArcMap 9.3.1, you will have no choice but to view all features of the map service's time-enabled layers.
