Alternative/workaround for using GeoGraphics when offline?

My work environment involves computers which are not connected to the internet. I'm trying to develop an analysis tool which should be fairly straightforward using GeoGraphics, however that requires internet access. If someone could at least point me in the right direction, that would be a great help.

A workaround which you could test:

  1. With Internet connection, do your work that involves GeoGraphics
  2. Save and close the notebook
  3. Disconnect the Internet connection
  4. Reopen the saved nb. The graphics can be seen as expected

My previous reply was not very bright, sorry. But I try again:

If you need to programmatically refer to the graphics offline you could try Iconize.


Copy the output icon to a notebook that later will be used for offline work. The full graphics will be stored in the notebook (not the kernel) and can be accessed without needing an internet connection.

Or use LocalSymbol at the persistent location to cache and reuse when you are offline.
