Understanding Reuse - Overwrite versus New Map Behavior
How your named resources are created and appear in the Spectrum Spatial repository depend
on the choices you made using the Map Uploader utility.
- If you uploaded a new map, named resources are created in the repository according to
the standard file structure (see Understanding the Structure of the Named Resources) .
- If you repeat the upload of the same map and choose to overwrite, layer resources will be
overwritten in the same folder with the newly uploaded properties. The named tables
will be checked and reused. New named tables will only be created if you have added
data to the map.
- If you repeat the upload of the same map and choose a different map name in the same folder,
a new folder for the layer resources will be created so that the two maps can each
have their own styles. Named tables in that folder will be reused if they represent
the same data. Any new tables that need to be created will be created, as before, in
the same folder as the map.
If you are creating a new map and tables were moved to a "common" folder, the new map won't look
at common folder, so there will be duplicates.
