Frequently asked question

Why is the same thumbnail used for all feature classes in coverage, CAD and VPF data?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Coverage, CAD, VPF, and some raster data formats can only have metadata stored for the entire data set and not on a per-feature class or per-raster band basis. When a thumbnail is created for a particular feature class, all other feature classes within the data set will use the same thumbnail.
