Maps App .NET

The Maps App for .NET shows how a suite of applications can be built around the ArcGIS Platform using the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET and a combination of WPF and the cross-platform framework Xamarin Forms. It demonstrates best practices around some simple but key functionality of the ArcGIS Runtime. You can use the Maps App as is, or extend it to meet your specific needs. Detailed documentation about the app and its architecture can be found on the developers website.

Configuring a Remote for a Fork

If you make changes in the fork and would like to sync those changes with the upstream repository, you must first configure the remote. This will be required when you have created local branches and would like to make a pull request to your upstream branch.

  1. In the Terminal (for Mac users) or command prompt (fow Windows and Linux users) type git remote -v to list the current configured remote repo for your fork.
  2. git remote add upstream to specify new remote upstream repository that will be synced with the fork. You can type git remote -v to verify the new upstream.

If there are changes made in the Original repository, you can sync the fork to keep it updated with upstream repository.

  1. In the terminal, change the current working directory to your local project
  2. Type git fetch upstream to fetch the commits from the upstream repository
  3. git checkout master to checkout your fork's local master branch.
  4. git merge upstream/master to sync your local master' branch with upstream/master. Note: Your local changes will be retained and your fork's master branch will be in sync with the upstream repository.

Configure the app

Maps app uses authenticated ArcGIS Online services for routing and geocoding. You need to configure the app for OAuth authentication.

  1. Log in to
  2. Create a new application.
  3. After creating the application, navigate to the 'Authentication' tab and add a redirect URI. Any URI should work, but try to choose something unique to your app, like my-maps-app://auth. The default value in the app's code is, so you can use that as an interim value while evaluating the app.
  4. While on the 'Authentication' tab, note the Client ID and the Redirect URI you specified.
  5. In Helpers\Configuration.cs within the MapsApp.Shared project, replace the default client ID and Redirect URI with the values noted earlier.
