ArcGIS Pro license levels

There are three ArcGIS Pro license levels: Basic, Standard, and Advanced. Each successive level adds functionality to the previous level.

You can purchase subscription-based licenses of the stand-alone ArcGIS Pro application at any license level. It is possible to purchase more than one license level: you can have a combination of Advanced, Standard, and Basic licenses.

If you purchase the ArcGIS Desktop application suite, the same license level applies to all the core applications. For example, if you have an ArcGIS Desktop Advanced license, this means that ArcGIS Pro, ArcMap, ArcCatalog, ArcScene, and ArcGlobe all run at the Advanced level.

If you have multiple ArcGIS Desktop licenses, they can be at different levels. For example, you may have two ArcGIS Desktop Advanced licenses, three ArcGIS Desktop Standard licenses, and five ArcGIS Desktop Basic licenses.

The following tables summarize the general functionality of each license level. For specific geoprocessing tools, the required license level can be found either in the tool's help topic (see the Licensing information section) or in the appropriate toolbox licensing topic. For example, Analysis toolbox licensing shows the required license levels for all analysis tools. Licensing information also indicates whether an extension is needed to use the tool.
