    Question How to use Offline Navigable Map in Netbeans IDE with Java Swing

    I am developing a program that will run on linux using java swing in netbeans.

    I tried using the jxmapviewer library with open street map but I was only able to view the map online.

    Since the system will not be connected to the internet, I need to view the map offline, I need to show the information I get from the gps on the map and I need to keep a record of this information.

    How can I do it? Thank you for your help.

    That sounds like a big project. Maps take a lot of space on your PC. I did something like that a few years ago but can't find it right now. I used Google to find downloadable maps. The names I found in my project folder were Leaflet and Mobile Atlas Creator.
    My project may have involved HTML and javascript. I will have to do some research.

    One possibility is to see if the code supports the file: protocol for reading the images.
    The OSMTileFactoryInfo constructor used in the Sample programs supports using your own URL to get the map files.


    Look at this file for sample code and ideas for offline:
    jxmapviewer2-master\examples\src\sample9_offline\Sample9.java
