Get started with a StreetMap Premium mobile map package

StreetMap Premium for ArcGIS Desktop is available in mobile map package (.mmpk) format. For licensed users, the .mmpk format may be either downloaded from ArcGIS Online and imported into ArcGIS Pro or downloaded and imported directly into ArcGIS Pro.

Before you download and use one of these mobile map packages, you must enable a StreetMap Premium extension. You can review license information in ArcGIS Pro to verify that a StreetMap Premium extension is enabled. Once the .mmpk format is available in ArcGIS Pro, you can use the mapping, geocoding, and routing functionality.

Enable a StreetMap Premium extension

You must enable a StreetMap Premium extension before you can work with a mobile map package in ArcGIS Pro. StreetMap Premium extensions are available for Named User, Single Use, or Concurrent Use licenses. Upon purchase, an authorization code is available through My Esri to enable the StreetMap Premium extension. For Named Users, ArcGIS Pro requires an administrator of an organization to assign software licenses and extensions. Once you have been assigned a StreetMap Premium extension, you gain access to the StreetMap Premium data.

For more information on ArcGIS Pro licenses, see ArcGIS Desktop license types.

About the mobile map packages

Each mobile map package includes two maps to help you get started, with the StreetMap Day map optimized for the best cartography and drawing speed in ArcGIS Pro. The Navigation Day map is optimized for display on mobile devices and a smaller screen display, with larger labels and symbology. On the Map tab, use the Locate tool Locate to perform single-line geocoding. The StreetMap Premium locators in the mobile map package include a Point of Interest (POI) locator so you can search for places such as the White House or Starbucks. The network dataset Routing_ND is present in the table of contents and is ready to use for creating routes and service areas. See geocoding and routing below for more information.

Customize a mobile map package

A mobile map package must contain a mapping layer, locator, and network dataset to be recognized as a valid map package by the Navigator for ArcGIS app. The mapping layers and locator can be tailored to your specific requirements. The pre-symbolized mapping layers can be easily customized in ArcGIS Pro, and you may add your own layers to the map as well. The mapping layers are organized by layer type and scale, so to display your own layers at all map scales, you will have to add the layers to multiple map scales. You may add your own locator to the mobile map package or make it part of one of the composite locators that are provided with the package. The network dataset is not customizable, however, a live traffic service or other online mapping service cannot be packaged for mobile use. To create a subset of a larger mobile map package, use the Create Mobile Map Package tool to clip to a smaller study area.

Geocoding

See Geocoding with StreetMap Premium classic locators in ArcGIS Pro for information on using StreetMap Premium geocoding functionality.

Note:

There are now two different sets of locators included in StreetMap Premium. The classic locators are the ones that have been included with StreetMap Premium over the last few years. The new locators are a new style similar to those used for the ArcGIS Online World Geocoding Service. The mobile map packages currently include the classic locators.

Routing
