I have a tpkx basemap on the internal storage on a device that I want the map to default to so it is easier for the users. Right now, the map defaults to an online basemap and I have to manually switch over to the downloaded basemap.
Is it only possible to have the map default to this basemap for offline use? The map will not be used offline besides the basemap.
HI @SW-JosephBogartGISS-T ,
Right now, setting a referenced basemap in the Web Map settings is only intended for use with maps taken offline; so to answer your question there is no way to force the local basemap to be the default when opened as an Online map. Is there a reason you couldnt add the tile package as a tiled service and add directly to the Web Map? Perhaps you could help us get a better understanding of your use case. Thank you!
The offline basemap is a large city wide aerial that takes too long to load even when hosted as a tiled service. Having it reference the offline basemap allows it to render basically instantly, but we don't want to take the whole map offline.
Hi @SW-JosephBogartGISS-T ,
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Can you please log this to the Ideas site so we can gauge if this is functionality others are looking for as well? https://community.esri.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/arcgis-ideas
