Working on ARCGIS for Offline mapping ,Can a tpk file have multiple map layers inside it?


Tile package (.tpk) file is a product of rasterization of your map document (.mxd) which can contain multiple layers.

This is essentially the same as caching map services if you more familiar with this concept.

  • thanks @Alex , One more doubt..is it possible to perform query tasks in TPK files? – Lithu T.V Jul 17 '14 at 12:33
  • A tile package is just a bunch of raster files so no vector data is included. You can, however, obtain information about the extent, scales included and other metadata provided partially in xml and in json. – Alex Tereshenkov Jul 17 '14 at 14:06
