I want to use my own basemap with ArcGIS Collector offline. I understand the .tpk process but the problem is that it is a imgs of an entire country.
and I will be using around 450 tablets. I can not be loading .tpk files on each tablet.
I need to create my own basemap because ESRI images are very outdated in most of the areas to be visited
I would recommend creating a tiled cache in ArcGIS Online from the IMGs. The following article will walk you through how you can do this:
Publish a Tiled Service to ArcGIS Online w/o ArcGIS for Server or Utilizing Your Credits
You can then add the tiled service as a basemap to the web map, and it will be accessible to all devices for offline editing.
i tried that and with AGOL it works but with my Arcgis Server does't , i'm using Arcgis for server 10.2 ,do you think that can be the trouble? i dont wat to use AGOL because the cache size maybe it will be like a 1TB
You will need at least ArcGIS Server version 10.2.2 to create an offline basemap for Collector.
