The command "om-locations-map-pack /tmp/diversity-maps my_map.eet" is self
sufficient to make the offline maps.
It would capture all your cached data (in /tmp/diversity-maps) and feed it
into my_map.eet file. Now, this file can server you as an offline map file.
When the application is told to use it, it would be able to show you the map
tiles even without internet connectivity.
