Allow users to edit data anywhere in the world and sync later.

Imagery

Imagery

Cache imagery and basemaps for use offline.

Geodatabases

Geodatabases

Services Pattern - Edit

Service pattern diagram

The services pattern allows basemaps and operational data to be extracted and downloaded to the device. Best for supporting numerous users who share data, this pattern allows multiple offline users to edit the same data layers and synchronize edits later, when online.

Services Pattern - View

This pattern allows basemaps to be downloaded to the device and used offline. ArcGIS tiled map services and ArcGIS Online basemaps allow for the on-demand creation of raster tile caches, letting you take your basemaps offline.

Desktop Pattern

The desktop pattern is best for supporting apps with read-only data requiring periodic updates.

Offline maps and packages are created with ArcGIS Pro. Users consume mobile map packages (.mmpk files), which can contain multiple maps, their associated layers and data, and optionally networks and locators.
