Opens and displays a scene from a Mobile Scene Package (.mspk).

Use case

An .mspk file is an archive containing the data (specifically, basemaps and features), used to display an offline 3D scene.

How to use the sample

When the sample opens, it will automatically display the Scene in the Mobile Map Package.

How it works

  1. Create a MobileScenePackage using the path to the local .mspk file.
  2. Use MobileScenePackage.IsDirectReadSupportedAsync to check whether the package can be read in the archived form (.mspk) or whether it needs to be unpacked.
  3. If the mobile scene package requires unpacking, call MobileScenePackage.UnpackAsync.
  4. Call MobileScenePackage.Load.
  5. When the MobileScenePackage is loaded, obtain the first Scene from the Scenes property.
  6. Display the scene in a SceneView.
