Take your basemaps offline with Geopaparazzi and your Android device

San Juan County Web Maps in Geopaparazzi

Geopaparazzi is an open source Android application that can be used to collect notes, GPS tracks and points while in the field. It includes the ability to load custom tiled basemaps.

The .mapurl files in this directory point to two San Juan County basemaps that can be loaded into Geopaparazzi.

Usage

  1. Install Geopaparazzi from the Google Play Store.

  2. Copy the mapurl files to your Android phone/tablet in the "maps" folder on your SDCard/Internal Storage. The mbtiles parameter in the mapurl file means that map tiles viewed while connected to the internet are then saved to the device for offline use.

  3. Start the Geopaparazzi app and click on the Menu button (three vertical dots) at the top of the screen. Choose "Select tile source" and select one of the sjc*.mapurl files.

  4. Ensure you are connected to WiFi or Cellular Data. Select the "map view" button on the screen and wait for the tiles to load.

  5. Before going offline, pan to the area(s) you want to view offline and zoom in and out to load all zoom levels for the area. Then you may turn on airplane mode and try panning/zooming to test that the map saved correctly.

Disclaimer

This is highly experimental at this time and some maps may not always work. Please email sjcgis@sanjuanco.com or reach out to me on Twitter if you have questions.
