March 24th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Esri has published Switching to ArcGIS Pro from ArcMap, a workbook which offers existing ArcMap users a road map to transition from using Esri ArcGIS Desktop software’s ArcMap application to using the ArcGIS Pro application. For close to 20 years, many users have become skilled in using ArcMap to create maps, perform spatial analysis, manage geographic data, and then share the results. But the software is soon to be retired, and the workbook helps users retain that expertise as they switch to the company’s next generation software. This generation software offers improved performance that takes advantage of multicore architecture; seamless integration of 2D and 3D visualisation, analysis, and editing; and improved flexibility in creating dynamic labels, among other benefits. The author walks readers through the salient differences between ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro. Exercises help readers become accustomed to those changes and get hands-on experience using the new tools and workflows. The workbook points out the advantages of the ArcGIS Pro architecture, interface, and workflows and offers tips on how to easily adapt to new ways of doing things. The workbook is available in print and as an e-book, and is available worldwide.
