Im quite new in arcmap map and i have been spending more than 2 week stuck in how to show map offline. I have tried the code is attached but when i run the application.It crashes nothing to show. You can see my code and i also attached geodatabase file.

i follow this tutorial: http://www.activeg.com/agBlog/android-running-an-arcgis-map-offline

And my geodatabase file is here https://files.fm/u/q5xuznvy

Code is here

MapView mMapView;

Geodatabase geodatabase; private GeodatabaseFeatureTable geodatabaseFeatureTable; private FeatureLayer featureLayer;

@Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

mMapView = (MapView) findViewById(R.id.map); //Instantiates the MapView object
LoadMap mLoadMap = new LoadMap(); //Runs the LoadMap class on another thread
mLoadMap.execute(); //Calls the background thread


private class LoadMap extends AsyncTask {

protected Void doInBackground(Void... params) {

    try { //Opens up the basemap.geodatabase file from it's location on the physical device
        Log.d("_EXC", "Loading File");
        geodatabase = new Geodatabase("/mnt/shared/Database/mygeodata.gdb");
        Log.d("_EXC", "File Loaded");
    } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
        Log.d("_EXC", e.getMessage());
    } finally { //Takes each layer one by one from the Geodatabase and adds it to the MapView
        if (geodatabase == null){
            Log.d("_EXC", "File not Loaded");
        for (int i = (geodatabase.getGeodatabaseTables().size()) - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
            geodatabaseFeatureTable = geodatabase.getGeodatabaseFeatureTableByLayerId(i);
            featureLayer = new FeatureLayer(geodatabaseFeatureTable);
    return null;



The issue is with your data format mygeodata.gdb presumably generated with ArcMap. You need to create a *.geodatabase runtime geodatabase file for use with ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android. Looks like you are using version 10.2.x, below are some relevant references:

  • I created .geodatabase file instead of .gdb. This step geodatabase = new Geodatabase("/mnt/shared/Database/mygeodata.gdb"); how to do if i want to put .geodatabase file in application instead of device? – zohaib Jun 21 '17 at 22:18
  • Putting in app is not directly supported. – jdONeill Nov 4 '17 at 21:49
