Are you a current ArcMap user? Have you heard it’s going away? Here’s what you need to know…


1️⃣ ArcGIS 10.8.1 is the current release of ArcMap and will continue to be supported until 3/1/26. 


2️⃣ There will NOT be an ArcMap 10.9 with the ArcGIS releases in 2021.


3️⃣ The focus by Esri going forward will be to switch over to ArcGIS Pro. 


🧐 So what does this mean for you? What should you do? 🧐


1️⃣ Even after support for ArcMap ends in 2026, customers can continue to use ArcMap as long as their license is valid. 


2️⃣ However, all desktop development efforts are focused on ArcGIS Pro, and customers are encouraged to migrate to ArcGIS Pro.


3️⃣ There are many resources available to help our users migrate from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro including Esri Academy, Learn ArcGIS lessons, Esri Partner Companies, blogs, videos and books.


4️⃣ If you’re interested in receiving support beyond 2026 with ArcMap 10.8.1, Esri Premium Support may be an option for customers to receive one additional year of Technical Support. 


5️⃣Versions 10.3.1 and older are officially retired and no longer supported.
