Tile Package Kreator
Tile Package Kreator - the desktop utility used for the easy creation of Tile Packages (i.e. local basemaps that you can take offline in Survey123 for ArcGIS, Collector for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Runtime apps) has just been updated! Version 1.2 comes complete with a number of enhancements that will make the app easier and more intuitive to use. To find out how to use it - please see the following blog: Taking your maps offline with Tile Package Creator.
But for now let’s run through what’s new:
You can now navigate to your desired location using a place name or address, and once there, you can draw polygons (as well as squares and polylines) to define your export extent. If you want to revisit the extent at later date, you can now save these drawn extents as spatial bookmarks (which can be exported to geojson too). TPK 1.2 will also enable you to interactively define the range of zoom levels you want to export – so if you want to export for example levels 4-12, this is now possible.
To make life easier, you can now switch tile services/basemaps without having to return to the gallery, and any public tiled service that you added to app will be persisted (so no need to keep re-entering them). There have also been a number of bug fixes related to the UI and file management.
