The ArcGIS Platform supports the development of offline applications. Examples include map or scene viewers, data collection or data editing applications, applications that are used under poor or unpredictable network conditions, or applications that are entirely prohibited from using a network.
The ArcGIS Platform provides the essential tools and technologies for preparing, managing, and packaging data for offline applications. The offline applications themselves are built with ArcGIS Runtime APIs. They run natively on phones, tablets, laptops, or desktop computers, and support mobile workers where network connectivity is unreliable or unavailable. Offline applications can display, analyse, and edit geographic data, perform geocoding, routing, navigation, and other analysis.
You can build offline applications that:
- Display interactive maps and scenes of geographic data.
- View and edit data from a feature service.
- View and edit data from a data file stored locally on a device.
- Geocode addresses and search for places.
- Look up the address or place name for a location.
- Calculate routes and directions between multiple stops.
- Provide an interactive turn-by-turn navigation experience.
- Perform on-device spatial analysis.
