AnswerIn general, there are three ways to display maps in an offline environment:
Option 1: Use the offline background mapsTo use the offline background map select Map > Background maps > Offline. For more information, see Select Background Maps.
Note: Due to size limitations with the offline map, zooming in too deep may result in errors as the images for the more close-up maps are not stored offline.
Option 2: Use a map as a background imageLocate the desired map online and save it as an image file, or copy a map from another location. Set this map image as a static background image in Tableau Desktop. For more information, see Adding Background Images.
Note: Zooming in and out will not work with background images.
Option 3 Use a local GeoServerFor more information, see Use Web Map Service (WMS) Servers.
