Tools that are not available in ArcGIS Pro

Some geoprocessing tools that are available in ArcMap are not available in ArcGIS Pro. Namely, geoprocessing tools that process data formats that are not supported in ArcGIS Pro are not available in ArcGIS Pro but often have alternatives, which are listed below.

Python scripts and ModelBuilder models built in ArcMap that use tools not available in ArcGIS Pro do not function and require updates.

3D Analyst tools

Coverage tools

Coverages are not supported in ArcGIS Pro, so the entire toolbox has been removed.

Cartography tools


  • Collapse Dual Lines To Centerline

Grids and graticules

  • Delete Grids And Graticules
  • Make Grids and Graticules Layer


Grids and graticules can be converted to graphics layers and feature classes using the Convert To Graphics and Convert To Features commands on a grid element in a layout.

Feature Class

Geodatabase Administration

  • Upgrade Spatial Reference

    The Upgrade Spatial Reference tool is primarily used with personal geodatabase feature classes, which are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

Geometric Network


Geometric networks are a read-only dataset in ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS Pro includes two capabilities you can use to manage, model, and analyze network systems: the Trace Network and the Utility Network.

  • Add Edge-Edge Connectivity Rule To Geometric Network
  • Add Edge-Junction Connectivity Rule To Geometry Network
  • Create Geometric Network
  • Find Disconnected Features in Geometric Network
  • Rebuild Geometric Network
  • Remove Connectivity Rule From Geometric Network
  • Remove Empty Feature Class From Geometric Network
  • Set Flow Direction
  • Trace Geometric Network
  • Verify And Repair Geometric Network Connectivity


  • Make Graph
  • Save Graph


Graphing and charting capabilities in ArcGIS Pro have been redesigned. Graphs and graph templates created in ArcMap are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

You can use the ArcPy Chart class to automate the creation of charts in ArcGIS Pro.

Additionally, you can author a layer with charts, save the layer as a layer file, and set that layer file as the Symbology property for custom script tool or model tool output parameters. When the script or model tool is run, the charts are automatically created for the new output datasets.


Raster Catalog

  • Copy Raster Catalog Items
  • Create Raster Catalog
  • Delete Raster Catalog Items
  • Export Raster Catalog Paths
  • Make Raster Catalog Layer
  • Raster Catalog To Raster Dataset
  • Repair Raster Catalog Paths
  • Workspace To Raster Catalog


Data Reviewer tools

  • Geodatabase Schema Compare

Location Referencing tools


The Location Referencing Tools toolbox in ArcGIS Pro combines many of the tools available in the Pipeline Referencing and Roads and Highways toolboxes in ArcMap.

  • Calculate Route Concurrencies
  • Convert M-Value Units Of Measure
  • Convert Table To CSV File
  • Detect Gaps For Linear Events
  • Detect Measures Out Of Range
  • Detect Non-Monotonic Routes
  • Detect Overlaps For Linear Events

Maritime tools


The Maritime Tools toolbox in ArcGIS Pro combines many of the tools available in the ArcGIS Maritime and ArcGIS Bathymetry toolboxes in ArcMap.

ArcGIS Maritime supports workflows for managing and producing hydrographic data in compliance with International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) standards.


  • Chart Automation
  • Convert AML Format
  • Create ZOC Diagram
  • Generate Annotation Masks
  • Generate Cartographic Limits
  • Generate Light Sector


  • Add Bathymetry
  • Create Mosaic Dataset From Model
  • Define Bathymetry
  • Create Surface Model
  • Export BIS Metadata
  • Export Deconflicted Footprints
  • Export Footprints
  • Export Points

Network Analyst tools


  • Find Closest Facilities
  • Find Routes
  • Generate Service Areas
  • Make Vehicle Routing Problem Layer
  • Solve Location-Allocation
  • Update Traffic Data
  • Update Traffic Incidents


ArcGIS Pro provides the same enhanced network analysis capabilities available in the Server toolset through other tools in the Network Analyst toolbox, Ready To Use Network Analysis tools, and the interactive network analysis workflow.

Parcel Fabric tools


The legacy parcel fabric for ArcMap is supported as a read-only dataset in ArcGIS Pro. You cannot create new or edit existing parcel fabrics for ArcMap in ArcGIS Pro, so the entire toolbox has been replaced.

ArcGIS Pro includes an enhanced parcel fabric that provides a comprehensive framework for managing, editing, and sharing parcel data in ArcGIS Enterprise, including the Parcel Tools toolbox.

Schematics tools


Legacy schematics are not supported in ArcGIS Pro, so the entire toolbox has been removed.

Utility Network schematic diagrams provide the capability to generate symbolic and simplified representations of the geographic features in a network.

Server tools


  • Convert Map Server Cache Storage Format
  • Delete Globe Server Cache
  • Manage Globe Server Cache Tiles
  • Upgrade Map Server Cache Storage Format


  • MXD To Web Map
  • Sign In To Portal

    You can use the ArcPy SignInToPortal function to automate signing in to a portal.

  • Sign Out From Portal

Tracking Analyst tools


The ArcGIS Tracking Analyst extension is not available or on the road map for ArcGIS Pro.
