Creating an Offline Map for Field Maps

It is best practice to use a different web map for each state, district, or even village. It ensures that there are minimal data layers and that those in other data collection areas are not accessing data that they have or will not collect.

Steps to creating an offline map for Field Maps:

1. Create a web map. Ensure that the baselayer, World Imagery for Export, is used
