The Package toolset provides tools to consolidate, package, and share layers (.lyr, .lyrx), maps (.mxd, .mapx), projects (.aprx), address locators (.loc), and geoprocessing results.
Layer files, maps and basemaps within projects, and address locators are containers that reference data that may reside on your local disk, across your local area network, or in your enterprise geodatabase. The tools in the Package toolset allow you to consolidate all your data resources into a single folder location using the consolidation tools or into a single compressed file using the package tools. The tools in the Package toolset make it easy to organize and share your data, maps, address locators and geoprocessing workflows with others.
Packages can be easily shared with others using standard file transfer techniques, or share them with a much wider audience by publishing them to ArcGIS.com using the Share Package tool.
Consolidates one or more layers by copying all referenced data sources into a single folder.
Consolidate a locator or composite locator by copying all locators into a single folder.
Consolidates a map and all referenced data sources to a specified output folder.
Consolidates a project (.aprx) of referenced maps and data to a specified output folder.
Generates tiles from a map or basemap and packages the tiles to create a single compressed .tpk file.
Packages maps and basemaps along with all referenced data sources into a single .mmpk file.
Creates a scene layer package (.slpk) from 3D points, multipatch features, or LAS data.
Creates a multiscale mesh of polygons that can be used as index polygons when creating vector tile packages.
