    It might actually already be possibly to do this. If so could someone please point me to a forum or help article because I haven't been able to find anything.

    It would greatly improve drawing performance if we would cache map data for mxd's locally. For example, in Business Analyst, we have the Base Map Layer with is essentially ESRI's Street Map Data along with a metric ton of demographics. It takes too long for all of that stuff to draw. I would really like to cache to Street Map data into tiles in the same manner that is possible for ArcGIS Server and just have ArcMap pull the appropriate tiles as neccesary from the local directory where I store the cache.
