Migrating from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro (replacement for Intro to ArcGIS Pro for GIS Professionals)


Meet the ArcGIS Desktop app that makes GIS work more fun.

With faster tools and integrated 2D and 3D capabilities, ArcGIS Pro will streamline your GIS projects. This course prepares experienced ArcMap users to be productive right away. Learn essential ArcGIS Pro terminology and concepts and how to efficiently complete a variety of tasks related to mapping, editing, analysing, and sharing geospatial data and resources

Please Note: If you have previously attended our Introduction to ArcGIS Pro for GIS Professionals course we do not recommend that you also attend this course as the content is similar.

Note: This course assumes significant ArcMap experience. If you are brand-new to ArcGIS Desktop, take ArcGIS Pro for GIS Newcomers instead of this course. You can find more details in the prerequisite section.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is an integral part of applying for and maintaining Chartered Geographer accreditation. Attendance of this course will provide the attendee with 10 CPD points. Click here to find out more

  • Work with vector, raster and table data.
  • Create a new file geodatabase and a new feature class.
  • Find information about data.
  • Use the different views of the table of contents (list, source, selection).
  • Select features using select by attribute using SQL and select by location.
  • Start an edit session, create a feature and add attributes.
  • Symbolise your data using text values or numeric values, alongside labelling.
  • Use geoprocessing tools to manage data or perform spatial analysis.
  • Create a layout page from scratch and include map marginalia.

Esri will provide the following software to use during class:

  • ArcGIS Pro 3.x.
  • ArcGIS Desktop 10.x.
  • ArcGIS Online.
