[QtLocation] get stored tiles - ESRI plugin

  • Hello everyone,
    Is there a way to use the QtLocation component for only download the imagery data (tile images)?
    In my app (that uses Ogre3D for graphics), I want to show on screen a map at a desired location, and knowing that QtLocation provides all the necessary means to display a map, maybe it's possible to only request the map tiles and store them for an offline usage and use them as textures in Ogre.

    Thanks a lot!

    Edit: I've learned that cache files are stored inside the "/<user>/.cache/QtLocation/5.8/tiles/<provider>, so thats great I can access those tiles, but, is there a way to only use the "esri" plugin (c++ api) to download those tiles?

  • If you are just using Qt Location, I'm not sure if there is a way to do that. If you are using the Esri ArcGIS Runtime SDK, you can use the Export Tile Task to download the tiles for use offline - http://developers.arcgis.com/qt/latest/cpp/api-reference/esri-arcgisruntime-exporttilecachetask.html
