ArcGIS Pro features

Cartography and Visualization

Work with intuitive and intelligent cartography tools at any map scale to create amazing 2D and 3D maps for print, apps, dashboards, and the web.


Use state-of-the-art tools, such as smart mapping, multi-attribute symbology, and flexible labeling and annotation options to create the world’s more stunning maps.


ArcGIS Pro features a project-based workflow, where you can work with multiple displays and layouts simultaneously in 2D and 3D.


Create multiple layouts in your projects using templates for industry standard and custom sizes and incorporates dynamic functionality, such as charts, tables, and legends.


Build dynamic maps, charts, and tables for use in powerful and informative dashboards.


ArcGIS Pro includes wizards and validation tools for publishing your maps for print, as interactive web maps, and optimized for ArcGIS Apps and custom applications.

Analytics and Data Science

Discover the world around you. Use scientific analytical tools on 2D, 3D, and real-time data to identify patterns, make predictions, and answer questions.


Simply getting your data onto a map puts it into context and reveals new insight and understanding.


Answers to many questions often require an understanding of spatial relationships such as proximity, coincidence, intersection, overlap, visibility, and accessibility.


Use GIS for site selection based on empirical data. Optimize routing by including your own custom network data (private roads) and restrictions for weight, turns, or cargo.


Find hot spots and outliers or natural data clusters when you use data to detect, quantify, and analyze changes in patterns over time.


Spatial analysis lets you use powerful modeling techniques to make predictions and better understand our world.


Improve the efficiency and accuracy of your tasks, workflows, and analysis with automation tools.

Work with your data using tools to automatically analyze, edit, transform, and manage your geospatial data.

Combine and automate your geoprocessing workflows with this WYSIWYG tool that features branching logic capabilities.

ArcGIS Pro was built from the ground up to support Python for geoprocessing. Manage your Python libraries with built-in Conda. Integrate with third party systems, such as R for statistical analysis.

Build your own wizards and integrated training tools with tasks, which allow you to establish reconfigured steps to guide people through workflows and business processes.


Data editing and management

Ensure data integrity and accuracy with a complete set of tools for storing, editing, evaluating, and managing all kinds of spatial data.

Store and access your data in ArcGIS using flexible methods that fit your workflows. Use the cloud, common file formats, or the geodatabase—Esri’s method for storing and managing geospatial data.

ArcGIS Pro provides all the tools you need to manage your geospatial data in single-user and multiuser editing environments. Simplify editing and ensure data integrity with context-sensitive editing tools, industry-focused templates, and domains and subtypes.

ArcGIS Pro contains a complete set of tools for checking and validating the accuracy of spatial relationships, connectivity, and attribution.


Drones, satellites, aerial, video, lidar, and more, ArcGIS Pro provides powerful tools to manage and analyze imagery.

ArcGIS Pro’s on-the-fly processing prevents data duplication and reduces the amount of imagery to store. Use dynamic mosaicking to update and process new imagery including orthorectification, pan sharpening, rendering, enhancement, filtering, and map algebra capabilities.

Manage imagery from a wide variety of sources including satellite, aerial, drones, unmanned aerial systems, full-motion video, elevation, lidar, and more.

ArcGIS Pro has the tools you need to understand and find patterns in imagery from a wide range of sources. Perform feature extractions, scientific analysis, temporal analysis to explore changes over time, and more.


Artificial intelligence (AI)

Blend IoT data, GIS-driven location intelligence, and AI-powered algorithms and deep learning models to drive insight and make smarter decisions.

Use ArcGIS Pro to build training datasets from your geospatial data for use in deep learning models. For example, use aerial imagery to build a model that identifies neglected swimming pools.

Tie together ArcGIS Pro, neural network models, and the latest hardware for deep learning inference, including desktop CPUs and GPU technology from NVIDIA on premise or in the cloud with Amazon or Azure.


Deploy ArcGIS Pro across your organization using tools that are secure and scalable.

Named user licensing

Named user licensing

Ensure that your users have secure access to the software, data, groups, and apps they need to get the job done with Named User licensing managed by ArcGIS Online.

Deploy in virtual machines or on the cloud

Support large-scale projects by deploying ArcGIS Pro in virtualized environments. ArcGIS Pro is supported on the most popular virtualization platforms.

Additional Benefits

Get access to a wide variety of additional benefits, including new releases, technical support, e-learning, beta programs, and more.
