Please see: http://www.xsce.org/wiki/generating_map_tiles
There is a temporary (for the next 1 hrs or so) tileserver here :

I am almost done generating tiles for upto zoom level 16, and can share the
download link once it is done - if required.

Also, in the xsce community there is ongoing discussion on how to enable
local mappers. Please check this out

One possible solution is using umap[1], but I haven't gotten around to
testing it because I have limited bandwidth. It's a django app and looks a
good fit for offline editing needs.

Also, if you can get the bhuvan imagery, please share if possible. Another
idea is using the ASTER data (topography), which would be especially useful
in mountainous terrain.
