I have noticed that the geoprocessing tool to create a mobile base map, present at 9.3 and 9.3.1, has been removed at ArcGIS 10. This tool allowed the creation of highly compressed vector data base maps in the SDC format.
I understand that you can now produce an ArcGIS Server tile cache to create mobile compatible base maps. However, this data is in raster format.
Is there any way of creating the SDC format resulting from the create a mobile base map tool present in previous versions?
Yes, StreetMap for Mobile will be released along with ArcGIS Mobile 10 final release. It is recommended customers obtain the physical media for StreetMap for Mobile data as each vendor/version is nearly 2GB in size. * Tele Atlas North America (USA & Canada) * Tele Atlas Europe * NAVTEQ North America (USA & Canada) * NAVTEQ Europe
Please contact Customer Service, 1-888-377-4575, to request the StreetMap for Mobile DVD be mailed to you.
I'm also after the Create Mobile Basemap tool in V10. I think that this would be of great use specially considreing the ease of use of ArcGIS Mobile at V10 and the availability at all license levels now. Any ideas?......I tried the old Mobile Tools toolbox, and abviously it dit not work....
We also have been using the CreateMobileBasemap GP tool. In our process we call this from several scripts to produce various maps for clients. What options do we have for producing Navmap/SDC maps using ArcGIS 10? Is there something in ArcObjects we can use to produce the SDC's from workspace dataset?
