Highlights

The Highlights section includes featured new functionality.

Package Manager

The Package Manager page allows you to manage conda environments for use within ArcGIS Pro. Formerly identified as the Python page, the Package Manager page now supports the upgrade of conda environments you’ve created in previous versions of ArcGIS Pro to the current version, the repair of broken environments, and renaming of existing environments.

In addition, the Package Manager is more responsive, with a new task queue to keep track of the status of your environment and package changes, and detailed conda messages are provided for all operations.

Add maps to reports

You can now add a map to a report. Maps that you add to the report header or footer are static. You can activate the map frame to adjust the map extent or scale. Maps that you add to a group header, group footer, or details subsection are dynamic. In the report view, the map frame of a dynamic map cannot be activated; however, the exported result updates in scale and extent to reflect the feature or features included in that subsection.

ArcGIS Knowledge

If you have configured an ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0 Knowledge Server appropriately, you can create a new investigation and knowledge graph using a Neo4j database as a NoSQL data store.

A new Geographic layout is available for link charts. Entities in the link chart are positioned on a map using their spatial geometry. Spatial data can also be added to the link chart and a basemap can be used to provide context for the knowledge graph's spatial entities.

For more new functionality and updated licensing information, see ArcGIS Knowledge in the Data management and workflows section.

Export presets

You can create export presets for maps and layouts in ArcGIS Pro. Export presets save all the settings for a particular export type. When you export a map or layout, you can select a default preset or a custom preset you created. This allows for a faster and more consistent export experience.

Presets are available in the export gallery on the Share tab of the ribbon. You can also browse to preset files (.xprt) on the file system. Presets can be created for any export type.

Color Vision Deficiency Simulator tool

The Color Vision Deficiency Simulator tool can simulate a map, layout or report in three modes of color vision deficiency: protanopia (a type of red color blindness), deuteranopia (a type of green color blindness), and tritanopia (a type of blue color blindness). Only one mode can be applied at a time. Each mode transforms the contents of the view to make it appear as it would to a person with a color vision deficiency. The color vision deficiency simulation modes are available on the View tab for maps, layouts, and reports.

Multiscale Geographically Weighted Regression (MGWR)

The Multiscale Geographically Weighted Regression (MGWR) tool performs local linear regression in which the coefficient values may vary across space. MGWR extends Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR) to use different neighborhoods for each explanatory variable, which allows the model to capture the varying scales of the relationships between the explanatory variables and dependent variable.

Geodatabases and databases

Cloud data warehouses

  • You can enable geohash feature bins for point and multipoint feature layers in Amazon Redshift. Additional feature bin options are supported for point and multipoint feature layers in Google BigQuery. See the Feature Binning toolset in the Data Management toolbox for more information.
  • A new option on the Database Connection dialog box allows you to include advanced or additional parameters when connecting to BigQuery, Redshift, or Snowflake.
  • You can publish query layers from BigQuery as read-only web feature layers. See the Share your work section for more information.

Data distribution

  • You can manage replica tracking for datasets using the Manage tab of the properties page when you prepare data for offline workflows.
  • You can share the contents of an enterprise geodatabase or file geodatabase as geodata services to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 and later versions. Geodata services allow you to perform geodatabase replication operations, make copies using data extraction, and run queries in the geodatabase.

Enterprise geodatabases and databases

  • Enterprise geodatabases in Microsoft SQL Server that you create or upgrade in ArcGIS Pro 3.0 allow you to restore the SQL Server database with a different name from the original name. Changes associated with this functionality mean that the following is true of 11.x geodatabases in SQL Server:
    • ArcGIS Pro 2.2 and earlier versions cannot connect to them.
    • ArcGIS 10.6.1 and earlier versions cannot connect to them.
    • Table and feature class names no longer include the database name. For example, a table named productdata.dataowner.inventory in a 10.9.x geodatabase is named dataowner.inventory starting with 11.x geodatabases.
  • You can connect to a Microsoft SQL Server database using Microsoft Azure Active Directory authenticated connections to Microsoft Azure SQL Database and Microsoft Azure SQL Managed Instance.
  • In an enterprise geodatabase, domain owners or geodatabase administrators can transfer domain ownership in the Domains view or using the Alter Domain geoprocessing tool.
  • Oracle Autonomous Database support has been extended to include the Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW) workload type. ADW supports transaction processing as well as warehousing. You can create an enterprise geodatabase in ADW using the Enable Enterprise Geodatabase geoprocessing tool.
  • The New Query Layer dialog box now has a List of Tables check box when you're connected to a database. You can check this box to view the table and column list for the connection.

Mobile geodatabases

  • When you add a SQLite database (.sqlite), OGC GeoPackage file (.gpkg), or mobile geodatabase (.geodatabase) to a project, the item displays its type as follows:
    • SQLite Database
    • SQLite Database with ESRI Spatial Type
    • SpatiaLite
    • GeoPackage
    • Mobile Geodatabase
    • Offline Mobile Geodatabase
    • Map Package Mobile Geodatabase
    Database properties for a SQLite database

Versioning

  • The default versioning type for enterprise geodatabases set for database connections can be configured in the versioning options.
  • The versioning type of the database connection workspace can be viewed in the Contents pane on the List By Data Source tab List By Data Source as well as the Source tab of the Layer Properties or Table Properties dialog boxes.
  • When editing in a named version, use the Change To Default context menu command Change Version to change to the default version. To learn more, see Connect to a branch version and Connect to a traditional version.

Indoor positioning

See Indoor Positioning toolbox for geoprocessing tool enhancements.

Indoors

See Indoors toolbox for geoprocessing tool enhancements.

ArcGIS Knowledge

  • The licensing for ArcGIS Knowledge has changed in ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0. Named users in the Enterprise portal no longer need a user type extension to access and analyze knowledge graphs. Each user must still have privileges to create and edit knowledge graphs.
  • After creating an investigation, you can use the histograms provided in the Search And Filter pane to select and filter entities and relationships in the investigation or on a map or link chart associated with the knowledge graph. As the selection changes in the paired view, the changes are reflected in the histograms.
  • You can analyze the portion of the knowledge graph included in a link chart to detect communities of entities that may not be apparent using other types of analysis.
    Communities of entities are listed and one community is selected in the Community table. Corresponding entities are selected on a link chart.
  • In a link chart, you can use new analysis capabilities to identify entities that can act as intermediaries between many selected entities. The Select Between operation does this using only content on the link chart. The Find Between operation analyzes the entire knowledge graph, and adds intermediate entities to the link chart if they are not already present.

See ArcGIS Knowledge in the Highlights section for more enhancements.

Multifile feature connections

  • Big data connections (BDCs) have been renamed multifile feature connections (MFCs). Multifile feature connections are applicable to data of any size (not only big data), and the new name more accurately describes the functionality.
  • Existing BDC files (.bdc) are still supported and can be used in the same ways as the new MFC files (.mfc).
  • In the Catalog pane or catalog views, multifile feature connections appear in their own project container Multifile Feature Connections. You can use this container to add, create, and manage MFCs.
  • To update the properties for an MFC dataset, you can right-click the dataset in the Catalog pane or a catalog view and use the Properties command.

See GeoAnalytics Desktop toolbox for geoprocessing tool enhancements.

Workflow Manager

  • The Open Pro Project Items step has been enhanced with the following features:
    • The referenced project is automatically opened in ArcGIS Pro when the step is run from the Workflow pane.
    • The step can be configured to restrict edits to the job's location.
    • The step can be configured to close the project when the step is completed.
  • You can now manage a job's one-to-one extended properties in the Workflow pane.

Editing

General

  • Preset template preview properties include a secondary insertion anchor for setting the orientation angle.
  • The Divide tool Divide includes a new parameter for specifying repeated lengths when using the varying distances method.
  • The Clip tool Clip includes a Contain option Split to delete all features outside the clip area.
  • The Array tool Array includes the ability to array features at an angle based on a specified rotation angle or the grid. It also includes an optional setting to preserve the orientation of the original selection. 3D handles are improved and work in 2D maps.
  • The Cancel button Cancel Changes on the edit toolbar deactivates the active tool if there is not a sketch in progress.

Parcel fabric

  • The parcel fabric uses geodatabase topology. The Validate Parcel Fabric geoprocessing tool has been deprecated.
  • The Reconstruct Boundaries tool Create Backlot creates individual parcel lines for parcel edges and generates missing COGO dimensions. The Reconstruct Boundaries tool is useful for tax mapping purposes.
  • The Reconstruct From Seeds tool Reconstruct From Seeds reconstructs parcels from seeds after their lines have been modified. Seeds are constructed into parcels whether or not there is an active record in the map.
  • The Transfer Parcel tool Transfer Parcels supports workflows for transferring a piece of land between source and target parcels.
  • If there is an active record in the map, the heads-up-display (HUD) box displays a warning message if the map is panned beyond the extent of the parcel features associated with the active record.
  • The Merge Points tool Merge Parcel Points allows you to enlarge or reduce the window size of the list of points to merge.
  • When you use the Align Features tool Align Features to align individual parcel lines, points are now merged.
  • The Traverse tool Traverse has been simplified for parcel data entry and enhanced for performance:
    • Line templates for the Traverse tool have been simplified. A traverse can only be created with lines from the chosen layer.
    • The tool is more responsive to rapid data entry. Performance and lag times have been improved when rapidly entering or digitizing traverse courses in sequence.

Imagery and remote sensing

Documentation

  • The Imagery and raster section of the ArcGIS Pro documentation has been renamed Imagery and remote sensing. It appears as a main heading on the Help tab in the online help and a main heading in the offline help.

General

  • Raster rendering has been enhanced in the following ways:
    • When you use the Mimimum Maximim stretch type with the Stretch renderer, you can edit the minimum and maximum values.
    • When Dynamic Range Adjustment (DRA) is applied to a stretched raster, the layer's minimum and maximum labels update in the Contents pane to reflect the current map extent.
    • You can use Lock Statistics to prevent the current DRA map statistics from changing.
  • When you finish georeferencing, you can export the control points and transformation details to an HTML report.

Raster charts

  • Dimension profile charts allow you to analyze change along a vertical dimension, such as depth or height, using a multidimensional raster dataset with a z-dimension.

Raster data types and sensors

Mapping and visualization

General

  • A new display setting in the application options allows you to clear the display cache each time ArcGIS Pro is closed.
  • The coordinate order of the Go To XY tool input boxes and labeled graphics matches the location units of the project.
    Go To XY overlay and labeled graphic on a map
    The location units are set to display map coordinates in latitude-longitude order. The Go To XY input boxes and the labeled graphic match that order.
  • The Color Vision Deficiency Simulator tool can simulate maps, layouts, and reports in three modes of color vision deficiency. See Color Vision Deficiency Simulator tool in the Highlights section.
  • Preset layers have been deprecated in ArcGIS Pro 3.0. They can be displayed but not modified. See Draw preset layers for more information.

Annotation and labeling

  • You can upgrade annotation and dimension feature classes to use the full cartographic model of ArcGIS Pro 3.0.
  • You can view the version of annotation and dimension feature classes on the Source tab of the Feature Class Properties dialog box.

Arcade

  • ArcGIS Pro 3.0 supports Arcade 1.18. For a summary of new features, see Release Notes for versions later than 1.17.

Coordinate systems and transformations

Updates and improvements have been made in the following areas:

  • Projected coordinate systems for Mars and the moon were added, along with updated definitions for a number of planetary satellites and extraterrestrial bodies.
  • Some coordinate system names were changed.
  • Corrections were made to transformation methods for some coordinate systems. Some outdated transformation WKIDs were removed that no longer exist in the EPSG registry. The transformations are still supported with their current WKIDs.
  • New vertical transformations based on geoids, quasigeoids, or other conversion grids are available.
  • Projection mathematics for the Hotine oblique Mercator projection and the Rectified skew orthomorphic projection were modified for very specific cases.

Export a map or layout

  • Export presets allow you to save map and layout export settings for reuse. See Export presets in the Highlights section.
  • You can export raster symbology to a .pdf file when using explicit CMYK values with the Unique Values or Classify renderers.
  • When you export a map or layout to PDF format, vector content is clipped slightly beyond the map frame boundaries. This creates smaller export files in cases where vector features would otherwise extend far beyond the map frame.
  • JPEG2000 compression is supported for images in PDF export, resulting in smaller export files.

OpenStreetMap 3D layers

  • You can explore and use royalty free worldwide OpenStreetMap 3D data hosted by ArcGIS Living Atlas (June 2022 update) in ArcGIS Pro 3.0. These 3D layers, hosted by Esri, present buildings, thematic trees, and realistic trees based on OpenStreetMap (OSM) data. Esri created these layers from the Daylight Map Distribution  of OSM data, which is supported by Meta. The OpenStreetMap 3D layers will be updated every month with the latest version of OSM Daylight data.

Reports

Symbols

  • When you symbolize a feature layer with unique values, graduated colors, dot density, or chart symbology, you can apply the colors of a color scheme to a subset of symbol classes.
  • When you search for symbols in the symbol gallery, all system styles are now searched by default. To limit the search to symbols in the project styles, choose Project styles from the drop-down menu next to the search bar.
  • Support has been added for glTF model markers that contain emissive textures.
  • Visual variables applied to the primary symbology now honor the sample size set in the advanced symbology settings.

Tables

  • Stand-alone tables in a map or scene can be filtered by time and range if they have appropriate attributes. When the time or range property is set in the table's properties, table rows are filtered according to the time or range slider on the map.
  • Selecting a field in a table now highlights the entire column.

Visual effects in scenes

  • Animated water symbols have been reengineered to look more realistic.

Pipeline Referencing

At ArcGIS Pro 3.0, ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing introduces linear referenced event data editing capabilities. Event features can be created using standard ArcGIS Pro editing tools or guided LRS tools for adding point and line events. Existing event records can be updated using standard editing tools and attribute table edits. The following event editing operations are new in this release:

The following additional enhancements were made:

  • Densification of centerlines created as curves is supported. When a centerline feature is created as a curve in ArcGIS Pro, it is automatically converted to a densified polyline to support linear referencing and measure interpolation.
  • You can run the Update Measures from LRS tool against a direct connection to a multiuser geodatabase or file geodatabase. The tool can still be run against a feature service as well.
  • The Keep centerlines chosen and selected option in the Location Referencing options allows you to choose whether centerlines remain chosen and selected for use in multiple LRS route editing operations.
  • Route and measure information appears on the map when moving the pointer along the route in the following Pipeline Referencing tools:
    • LRS Identify
    • Split Centerline By Point and Split Centerline By Measure
    • LRS route editing tools (Extend Route, Retire Route, Realign Route, Reassign Route, and Reverse Route) when choosing a route or measures on the map
    • LRS calibration point editing tools (Add Point, Edit Point, and Delete Point) when choosing a route or calibration point

In a combined Pipeline Referencing-Utility Network deployment, the following enhancements are available:

  • The Append Routes tool has been enhanced to consider existing centerlines when loading routes.
  • Populating measures on the pipeline line feature class before making an LRS route edit is now optional. You can use suggested measures provided by the Create, Extend, and Realign route editing tools. Route editing measures are populated onto the pipeline line features automatically. You can continue to populate the measures on pipeline line features in advance if you choose.
  • When a pipeline line feature is split through an LRS route edit, the core split tool, or one of the LRS split centerline tools, the From Measure and To Measure columns are automatically updated, reducing the need to run the Update Measures from LRS tool.

  • When you are signed in to your organization, your profile photo now displays on the Portals page or the Sign In menu at the top of the application. To update your profile, see Manage profile and settings.

Share your work

  • You can publish query layers from Google BigQuery as web feature layers. The options to reference a materialized view or access data directly may be available for each query layer.
  • OGC Features can be enabled when you share a map image layer or publish a map service. OGC Features services are compliant with the OGC API Features specification and allow you to serve geospatial data over the web. This is supported for ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0 and later versions.
  • ArcGIS Pro 3.0 includes changes that may affect sharing content to older versions of ArcGIS Enterprise or ArcGIS Server. When saving an offline service definition for a web layer or map service, you can now specify the version to ensure content is compatible with your server. An ArcGIS Online option is also available.
  • Feature layer editing options have been redesigned to match editing operations in ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Enterprise, and ArcGIS Server.
  • A summary and tags are no longer required when you share items to ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 and later versions.
  • You can save web scenes in ArcGIS Pro to update existing web scenes in your ArcGIS organization.
  • You can publish a voxel scene layer in a local scene to ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0 and later versions. The web scene layer is cached locally.
  • New data store types have been added:
    • You can register cloud stores as data stores to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.1 and later versions. Supported cloud storage providers include Alibaba Cloud Storage, Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage (supported for ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 and later versions), and Microsoft Azure Storage.
    • You can register NoSQL databases as data stores to ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0 and later versions. Only Neo4j is a supported provider.
  • You can share geodata services to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 and later versions.

Trace networks

  • System-provided network attributes are now exposed in the Trace and Add Trace Configuration tools. Access to system-provided network attributes eliminates the need to create duplicate user-defined network attributes based on system-maintained values such as Source ID or Flow direction when configuring a trace.
  • A new supportsTraceSystemNetworkAttributes capability in ArcGIS Enterprise11.0 broadcasts the ability to use system-provided network attributes in the Trace and Add Trace Configuration tools when working with a trace network service.
    • When present, this capability is supported for Trace Network versions 2 and 3 accessed through a service.

Utility networks

  • A new Select Associated Data context menu command displays a list of valid association types for a selected feature or object in the Attributes pane. You can select associated data for an individual network feature in the pane's selection tree view or perform a bulk selection of associated data for all selected network features.
  • True curves are now supported with the Export Subnetwork geoprocessing tool, enabling integration of accurate geometry into external systems.
  • Preset layers are deprecated in ArcGIS Pro 3.0. To add subtype group layers to your map, use the new Subtype Group Layer command on the Add Data drop-down menu Add Data.
    Subtype Group Layer command on the Add Data drop-down menu
  • Improvements have been made to propagation handling on devices with terminals. For example, if two lines are connected through the high-side terminal of a transformer, the propagated value remains consistent as it passes through the terminal and isn't influenced by the phase set for the transformer.
  • Improvements to network topology, subnetwork management, and tracing framework in the utility network include the following:
    • Better trace framework performance when running subnetwork-based traces
    • Better Export Subnetwork performance when geometry is included in the results
  • Performance optimizations have been made to the following Utility Network geoprocessing tools: Add Rule, Import Rules, Delete Rule,, Export Subnetwork, Validate Network Topology, Enable Network Topology, Disable Network Topology, and Update Subnetwork. These updates are not implemented in versions prior to ArcGIS Pro 3.0.
Note:

The currently designated network management release of ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 and ArcGIS Pro 2.9 includes the majority of utility and telecom-related improvements made in ArcGIS Pro 3.0. Technical limitations prevent some items from being added to earlier releases.

  • System-provided network attributes are now exposed in the Trace, Add Trace Configuration, and Set Subnetwork Definition geoprocessing tools. This eliminates the need to create duplicate user-defined network attributes based on system-maintained values such as Asset group or Asset type when configuring the subnetwork definition for a tier or configuring a trace. It also preserves valuable bits for the creation of additional user-defined In Line network attributes.
  • A new supportsTraceSystemNetworkAttributes capability in ArcGIS Enterprise11.0 broadcasts the ability to use system-provided network attributes in the Trace and Add Trace Configuration tools when working with a utility network service.
    • When present, this capability is supported for all utility network versions accessed through a service.
