Hi,

Is there a way to create a SKM file from a specific region? For example, if I create a custom SKBoardingBox region for a specific city, is there a way to download this information and have it for offline usage?

If you need additional maps (regions), the Maps.json file cannot be changed dynamically. Under the standard plan, we cannot provide you direct access to the map cutting tool, but we can create a reasonable number of map cuts (send an email to dev@telenav.com)
Once the new maps have been cut you will receive back the location for the new files. The Maps.json file on our server will not be updated automatically but you can add the new entries to the json file yourself (you will need to store the json file on your own servers to enable this) and reuse the same download mechanism as for "standard" map cuts.

SKBoundingBox won't help you achieve your purpose (offline map for a specific region).
The SKBoundingBox (http://developer.skobbler.ro/docs/ios/2.5.0/Classes/SKBoundingBox.html) is used only to define a bounding box on the map between a bottom right and top left coordinates.

Hi Adela,

we need to change a tile of your map, not only for the visual representation, but the routing as well. Our plan is, once we received your map cut as a json-file, we change and store it on our server. Our apps then download yours and our map cuts and connect them for routing and visual representation. Would that be possible? And is there a tool available for editing the maps.json-file? We don't want to work with the json-text-file itself, but a visual representation of it.

Kind wishes

I'm afraid that's not possible. The maps are in the skm map format and can be created only by us (our maps are based on the OSM data structure + some additional processing). If I'll create a custom map for you, we will store it on our servers and we will offer you the path to the skm file (you can use the same mechanism as for the out of the box maps to add that custom map into your app)
