The best way to familiarize yourself with ArcGIS Pro is to start using it. If you don't have ArcGIS Pro yet, you can sign up for an ArcGIS free trial .
The ArcGIS Pro quick-start tutorials show key functionality and walk you through meaningful workflows. The tutorials will help familiarize you with ArcGIS Pro concepts, such as storing your work in projects, using the ribbon, and utilizing new tools for visualizing data. The tutorials also demonstrate how you can take advantage of the larger ArcGIS platform to bring data from the Living Atlas into your maps and projects, share your maps and research on ArcGIS Online, and access your shared content on mobile devices. These tutorials will give you the skills to begin working with your own projects and data and start using ArcGIS Pro like a pro.
There are no prerequisites for these tutorials. You can follow them in the order suggested below or in any order that interests you. However, some of the tutorials assume that you're familiar with functionality demonstrated in the Learn the basics tutorials, such as creating a project or adding data. If you're brand new to ArcGIS Pro, it is recommended that you start with the Introducing ArcGIS Pro tutorial to familiarize yourself with the ArcGIS Pro user interface. If you're not sure which tutorial to try, most tutorials include a short preview video, so you can get an idea of the tutorial workflow.
Most of the tutorials use existing ArcGIS Pro projects and data. You can download the data for all the tutorials in one file from the ArcGIS Pro Quick-Start Data page. Software requirements are listed in the Tutorial Summary section at the beginning of each tutorial. Usually, the only required software is a current version of ArcGIS Pro. If you open a tutorial project with an older software version, you'll see the following warning message:
You can continue with the tutorial, but some steps may not work as described. It is recommended that you update your software version to have the best experience with ArcGIS Pro. Additionally, an Internet connection is required to access basemaps and for steps in several of the tutorials. If an Internet connection is needed for steps in addition to accessing basemaps, it will be noted in the Tutorial Summary section.
Learn the basics
