Add Graphics Activity

Description

The Add Graphics activity adds features to a graphics layer on the currently selected map.

Usage

You may need to display a feature on a map. In one scenario, you could create a feature using the Create Feature activity, and then display that feature on the map using the Add Graphics activity.

Inputs
