Highlighting ESRI technical topics, news, and updates.
Has your organization started learning and using ArcGIS Pro? It was recently announced at the 2017 ESRI Dev Summit that the company will not be putting out updates of ArcMap after version 10.6. ArcGIS Pro, which is included with your ArcGIS Desktop license since version 10.3 (January 2015), will be the only desktop application that ESRI will be supporting moving forward. Built from the ground up, in order to make it fully 64-bit compatible, ArcGIS Pro was developed from the input of the worldwide GIS community to meet the modern GIS professionals needs.
