Take a map offline using a preplanned map area.

Use case

Generating offline maps on demand for a specific area can be time consuming for users and a processing load on the server. If areas of interest are known ahead of time, a web map author can pre-create packages for these areas. This way, the generation only needs to happen once, making the workflow more efficient for users and servers.

An archaeology team could define preplanned map areas for dig sites which can be taken offline for field use.

How to use the sample

Select a map area from the Preplanned Map Areas list. Click the Download button to download the selected area. The download progress will be displayed through a progress bar. When a download is complete, select it to display the offline map in the map view.

How it works

  1. Open the online Map from a PortalItem and display it.
  2. Create an OfflineMapTask using the portal item.
  3. Get the PreplannedMapAreas from the task, and then load them.
  4. To download a selected map area, create the default DownloadPreplannedOfflineMapParameters from the task using the selected preplanned map area.
  5. Set the update mode of the preplanned map area.
  6. Use the parameters and a download path to create a DownloadPreplannedOfflineMapJob from the task.
  7. Start the job. Once it has completed, get the DownloadPreplannedOfflineMapResult.
  8. Get the map from the result and display it in the MapView.

About the data

The Naperville stormwater network map is based on ArcGIS Solutions for Stormwater and provides a realistic depiction of a theoretical stormwater network.

Additional information

Enums.PreplannedUpdateMode can be used to set the way the preplanned map area receives updates in several ways:

  • PreplannedUpdateModeNoUpdates - No updates will be performed. This mode is intended for when a static snapshot of the data is required, and it does not create a replica. This is the mode used for this sample.
  • PreplannedUpdateModeSyncWithFeatureServices - Changes, including local edits, will be synced directly with the underlying feature services. This is the default update mode.
  • PreplannedUpdateModeDownloadScheduledUpdates - Scheduled, read-only updates will be downloaded from the online map area and applied to the local mobile geodatabases.

For more information about offline workflows, see Offline in the ArcGIS Developers guide.
