Good Morning.  I am curious about adding imagery to an mmpk.  We have someone who needs to be completely offline while working in their mobile application.  They would like to have imagery available for them to use in addition to a vector basemap.   Is it possible and has anyone successfully added a tpk to an mmpk and how did it work for the end user?

Yes,  .tpk files can be added to an MMPK.  You can use it as a basemap layer or just a layer in your map that the end user can turn on and off, if they want.

Are there any requirements to those MMPKs containing TPKs? We're testing but cannot view the TPKs within maps. Able to open the maps and see the polygons but not the TPKs (although they're shown in the Layers list). Are wondering if it's related to having issues switching to a TPK basemap in Pro as you showed in the VTPK tutorial example. Any tips or updates to that example coming?

Sarah,

In your pro project, check to make sure the .tpk and the Map are in the same coordinate system.

Explorer does not re-project TPKs on the fly.

It's also better display performance when all data and map are in the same coordinate system.

That was it! Thanks, for the quick reply, Mark!

We're very excited about this functionality - wonderful!

Cheers,
