Sample mbtiles

These tiles can be used as offline maps. Both raster and vector tile formats are supported. More specifically the format of the map data can be; pbf, mvt, jpg or png.

With version 6.31 of fieldTask, (Version 1.23.3 of Collect) the tiles file with extension mbtiles should be placed directly in /sdcard/fieldTask/layers.

Note previously the supported offline tiles format was "webp" and the sample tiles I provided of the Baynihan centre were in this format. However this format is no longer supported presumably because it is from google and fieldTask/Collect now uses Mapbox as the map API. The Task map that shows the location of tasks still uses the google maps API so we have removed the option of using offline maps there for the moment. Let us know if adding offline maps back into the task view is a requirement.
