In this book you will learn intermediate techniques for using ArcGIS Pro 3.x.  The book begins with a chapter on creating spatial and bookmark map series.  You’ll learn how to create spatial map series using grid, index, and irregular index layers as well as new functionality for creating bookmark map series.

Next, you’ll learn ArcGIS Pro techniques for data preparation and analysis.  The reader will learn how to access geoprocessing tools in ArcGIS Pro as well as commonly used data preparation and analysis tools.

At some point all GIS professionals will need to share their work with others whether that be colleagues in the profession or the public.  There are many ways to share maps and data using ArcGIS Pro and the reader will learn several techniques for doing so using geodatabases, shapefiles, packages, PDFs and image file.

Editing spatial and attribute data is one of the most common uses of ArcGIS Pro.  The workflow for how editing is accomplished has changed dramatically from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro.  The reader will learn the new ArcGIS Pro editing workflow as well as commonly used tools for both spatial and attribute editing.

Next, you’ll learn how to create custom content for pop-ups.  After an overview of basic pop-up concepts that are associated with identify operations, you’ll learn how to custom the content of pop-ups to include images, charts and graphs, links, and other content.

Finally, we’ll wrap up the book with an introduction to the Arcade programming language for creating custom symbology, custom labels, and custom pop-up content.  Arcade is as simple, easy to learn programming language that can be used to create dynamic custom content for your data and maps in ArcGIS Pro.

Download Exercise Data From:


Please note that many organizations have security settings that block file sharing services. If you’re having trouble downloading the exercise data from either of the links above, you may need to work with your IT security personnel to temporarily reduce the security settings so that you can download the file.

Instructions for installing the exercise data:

Create a c:\Student folder on your computer. The exercise data does not have to go into this folder. If you’d prefer to use a different location, you can. Just keep in mind the difference in location as you go through the exercises in this book.

Unzip the exercise data to the c:\Student folder.
