ArcGIS Pro – Reinventing Desktop GIS

ArcGIS Pro is now available, and it is part of ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop. This new desktop application includes many of the features and enhancements you’ve been asking for, including multiple layouts, 2D and 3D editing, 64-bit processing, project workflows, better performance, and so much more.

2D and 3D Together

ArcGIS Pro is all about the map, and it is time to re-envision the maps that you make. 2D, printed maps are now only one piece in your total map-making arsenal. With ArcGIS Pro, you can now create 3D maps and globes as interactive scenes to visualize information with a new and more complete perspective. You can also create fully functional web scenes and share them with others through ArcGIS Online.

2D and 3D Editing in ArcGIS Pro

Modern But Familiar

Although ArcGIS Pro is different from ArcMap, it has a familiar look. The new ribbon interface will help you find the right tools and options as you need them, and the same tools you love will still be available. And don’t forget: You can install ArcGIS Pro on the same machine as any version of ArcMap.

ArcGIS Pro features hundreds of geoprocessing tools, lets you create models with ModelBuilder, and allows you to script workflows with Python. ArcGIS Pro is also a powerful raster and imagery application; use it to perform raster analysis on the fly and work with large lidar datasets in 3D.

ModelBuilder in ArcGIS Pro

You can get started with ArcGIS Pro right away by importing ArcMap documents, scenes, or globes. You’ll still be able to edit your existing data and geodatabases and use many of your ArcMap Python scripts and models. At the initial launch of ArcGIS Pro, you can also work with many popular desktop extensions including Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, Geostatistical Analyst, Network Analyst, Workflow Manager, and Data Reviewer.

An Integral Part of the Platform

ArcGIS Pro is closely integrated with ArcGIS Online and the rest of the ArcGIS platform. So, with ArcGIS Pro you can author, publish, and view web layers and maps either using your organization’s Portal or ArcGIS Online instance. And you’ll have the power to create web maps directly within ArcGIS Pro. Why is this a big deal? Any web maps you create with ArcGIS Pro can be immediately accessed and used by all the web and mobile apps in the ArcGIS platform, such as Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS and Collector for ArcGIS.

More to Come

We’re just getting started with ArcGIS Pro. You can expect a more rapid release cycle to provide you with additional features and capabilities to support the work you do. We invite you to give ArcGIS a try and let us know what you think. You can submit your suggestions using the ArcGIS Ideas site.
