I implemented the example in the link below,

https://www.qt.io/blog/2017/05/24/qtlocation-using-offline-map-tiles-openstreetmap-plugin

Works well, however I need much more map data then the provided file in the example. To satisfy this absent I exported necessary map area in the format of .osm.pbf.

But I am not able to use this format in the QT plugin.

    The plugin requires tiles, i.e. pre-rendered map images. .osm.pbf instead is raw data that needs to be rendered first, resulting in these tiles. – scai Feb 19 at 8:32
  • Are there any tool for rendering process? – neutri Feb 19 at 8:37
  • Yes, see rendering link from my previous comment. Examples are Maperitive, Kosmtik and TileMill. – scai Feb 19 at 8:43

The QtLocation plugin requires tiles, i.e. pre-rendered map images. .osm.pbf instead is raw data that needs to be rendered first, resulting in these tiles. This means you either have to find an online resource for downloading OSM tiles or you have to render them yourself. For rendering take a look at Maperitive, Kosmtik or TileMill.
