You shouldn’t be able to see the layers in the “parent map” on the Congressional Portal. The layers are only authenticated and made viewable when using the web mapping application templates.


I did see the attached in the Example 1 “child application.” Is this what you’re expecting?

Subject: Problem seeing RAP data in Congressional Portal Applications


I am not able to see any service layers with connections to the RAP Database in Congressional Portal applications.

I can see the same data in the parent Congressional Portal maps…


Example 1:

Parent Map:


Child Application:


Example 2:

Parent Map:


Child Application:


In the second example, the external service, Federal Lands, does display, but the GHE service, Congressional Districts, does not display.


Please troubleshoot…
