Share a chart

In ArcGIS Pro, charts are linked to and stored with the chart's source layer. Charts are not a separate file or project item, rather they are an extension of the source layer. To share a chart, you can do the following:

  • Share the chart's source layer as a layer package
  • Share the map the source layer is in as a map package
  • Share the project the map is in as a project package
  • Export the chart as a graphic file
  • Add the chart to a layout

To see which layers have a chart, switch to the List By Charts tab List By Charts in the Contents pane.

Share layers, maps, and projects

All of a chart's properties, including the variables specified, properties, title, and description, are maintained with the source layer you share, so a shared chart will have the data and settings necessary to appear exactly as the chart was authored.

Use a shared chart

After adding or opening the shared layer, map, or project in ArcGIS Pro, you can find the layers that have an associated chart by switching to the List By Charts tab List By Charts in the Contents pane. You can open the shared chart and interact and manage it in the same manner as other charts.

Other ways to share a chart

Charts can be exported as a graphic file (.svg, .jpg, or .png) using the Export button in the chart window.

Charts can also be added to a layout as a chart frame.
