Creating a Tile Package for Use As Background in a Mobile Project

Today I have a video demonstration showing you how to use ArcMap to create a tile package.  Why would you want to do that?  One reason is so you extract the tiled data set in the Mobile Project Center and use it as background data in an ArcGIS Mobile project.

Enable ArcGIS Runtime

As you will see in the video, you must enable the ArcGIS runtime within ArcMap before you can access the Share As > Tile Package tool.

ArcGIS Mobile Tools

Instead of adding the basemap to your mobile project in the Mobile Project Center, you will use the Extract Tile Package tool to add it to your project.  The result will be a ready-to-deploy mobile project that includes the background data set.
