I am traveling to Costa Rica and would like to use Collector with my cell phone to record some information in a feature class. I would like to find some 1m or better imagery to put in a web map that could be synced for offline use.

Does anyone have suggestions for Costa Rica imagery that is publicly available?

Also, is it possible to publish OpenStreetMap as a vector tile package for the same offline use?

  • The current release of Collector does not support vector tile packages. If you have vector data you can create just a tile package and side load that into Collector or Publish it as a tile layer and have it support Export Tiles(same for imagery). Here are the esri provided basemaps arcgis.com/home/… – Russ Roberts Jul 5 '17 at 15:28
  • That provided a viable basemap for export but the entire dataset is much too large. Is it possible to only publish the part of the map in the data frame (i.e. only Costa Rica)? The clip tools do not work for this type of layer. – SteveC Jul 5 '17 at 22:47
  • When you download in collector you can specify an extent before downloading but there is a tile export limit. You might want to chunk it up into different zones and have collector download a general "master zone" and the basemap switcher will show all offline basemaps that are within your downloaded extent so you can hit different lower levels. – Russ Roberts Jul 6 '17 at 14:17
  • That worked. I was trying to publish the tile layer instead of adding it in AGOL. My map is all downloaded and ready for Costa Rica. Thanks! – SteveC Jul 6 '17 at 15:30
