I did an ArcGIS Online training course a while back and learned a little bit more on Tile Packages. I followed the instructions, how-to-create-a-tile-package and created a tile package for some aerial photography. The process completed and I now have a nice little 68GB tile package.
I want to use this package locally in ArcGIS Desktop, but whenever I add AirPhoto.tpk to my ArcMap it will freeze and stay like that. I have a pretty powerful PC and the resources aren't maxing out when I try to add it, it just seems to freeze the ArcGIS desktop. I've tried waiting about 12 hours for the process to complete, but it still stays frozen.
I've been able share a different package and store it on ArcGIS online, then bring it back to desktop. That option doesn't really work for the aerial photos as I would max out my credits storing it online. I've got ArcGIS for Server here and think I will try adding it there and sharing it.
What am I doing wrong here? Do I need to unpack it or something and if so what is the point of a tile package? I am currently running 10.3 Advanced, does an upgrade to 10.4 solve this?
