    Thank you very much for a such informative article.
    By the way, you can also generate a mbtiles tile set from different data sources using MapSurfer.NET – a free and advanced cartographic framework.

  2. Glad my Kili map was useful. 🙂

    I am not able to find my OfflineMaps folder. If I create it and place my mbtiles into it, MapIt cannot find the files. 🙁

      In his Android MBTiles app, he says to put it in “MbTilesMap->Resources->Maps”. Is that helpful? I did not see that above.

        MbTiles Map is a different app. For MapIt you should have your mbtiles in MapIt->OfflineMaps folder. The folder is being generated automatically when the app is starting for the first time, if is not visible on PC, sometimes restarting the phone/tablet helps to discover new folders. If you have still problem please copy the file to the root of SD card and than move the file using file manager on the phone/tablet to MapIt->OfflineMaps

      Hi Paulo, I am not sure as I am not working with Maperitive on the daily bases – please refer to the guide or contact the Maperitive team for support. I will have a look when have got more time, but cannot remember right now.
