Hi, I've created this tool originally for GIS community, but it also can be used for creating MBTiles offline maps.
If any one needs to create MBTiles map, just try this:
Portable Basemap Server https://geopbs.codeplex.com/
Any question can be posted here. Smile

Simple steps to create MBTiles map using PBS(PBS has lots other functions, just ignore them):
A tool for downloading MBTiles map--alternative to MOBAC 110

A tool for downloading MBTiles map--alternative to MOBAC 210

And then click Start button, waiting... and done. Smile
p.s.:online map source can be configured through CustomOnlineMaps.xml file. All source including it just for testing purpose.

A tool for downloading MBTiles map--alternative to MOBAC Empty Arcgis map servers?

Wonderful tool, and it works very well. Can it also be used to export maps from ArcGIS mapservers into MBtiles?

The short answer is YES.
If you want to convert cache tiles from ArcGIS to MBTiles, this can be done directly by using Format Convert->ArcGIS-->MBTiles.
If you want to convert an cached map service of ArcGIS Server into MBTiles, just add an entry to CustomOnlineMaps.xml, and using Format Convert-->OnlineMaps --> MBtiles.
If you want to convert an dynamic map service of ArcGIS Server into MBTiles, you can first create an PBS service by using the ArcGIS Server map service rest url as ArcGISDynamicMapService data source, then write this PBS service end point into CustomOnlineMaps.xml, last using Format Convert-->OnlineMaps --> MBtiles.Smile

A tool for downloading MBTiles map--alternative to MOBAC Empty further help

Sorry for the silly questions but I'm totally new to GIS.
With standard tiling schemes I can deal using the existing XML onlinemapsources.xml script of Orux.
But, say I have a map server address such as http://www.x.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Clients/X/MapServer/
and a tile scheme that follows http://www.x.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Clients/X/MapServer/tile/10/241713/285523
The Z X and Y co-ordinates are not standard (do not comply to Google maps/OSM conventions).
I do not run the map server - it's an online resource.
How do I proceed?

Hi, the bottom line is MBTiles specification only allows to store tiles of Google Maps/Bing Maps(wkid=3857) tiling scheme.
So, before you store any tiles into MBitles file, be sure the tiles are the same tiling scheme with popular online maps.
If you got an tiled ArcGIS Server map service which is not compatible with Google Maps tiling scheme, you can not simply convert it to MBTiles file. However, if you could access the dynamic ArcGIS Server map service of the same map data, then you could specify an ArcGIS Server tiling scheme file(conf.xml and conf.cdi) of Google Maps tiling scheme, and use it to let PBS do the transform works to output Google Maps tiling scheme compatible tiles from the original dynamic map service(by using on the fly project ability of ArcGIS Server dynamic map service), then you can convert the result tiles in to MBTiles.
