Feature layer

The feature layer is the most common type of layer in ArcGIS Online. It is a service that allows the querying, visualization, and editing of your vector GIS data. Compared to the desktop environment of ArcGIS Pro, this would be your point, line, or polygon feature class layer from a geodatabase in your map. With the feature layer, you can select features, apply queries, configure pop-ups, and even create views based on the feature layer.
