    I use mbtiles maps that were created by Global Mapper by using the Orux Maps application on my Android phone.  I have installed the GeoOdk Collect application and followed the website instructions to copy a map for use by the app.  When loading the map in the app I see a lengthy error message. 

    I suspect that GeoOdk is preferring to use maps created by TileMill, as described on the website instructions.  So I don't see any options for you at this time.

    Indeed, GeoOdk doesn't like GM Mbtile's. It's a pity because GeoOdk is well known for land survey's. Furthermore, TileMill interface's is not user friendly, and it is not well maintained.

    Hello,

    Have you been in touch with GeoOdk support?  They might be able to determine what aspect of the MBTiles tile set is causing the problem, and how it can be corrected.

    Cheers,
    Bob

    Finaly, i have mixed between GM and TileMill in order to obtain something readable on a webphone. Thank you for your answer
