The Package toolset contains tools to consolidate, package, and share layers, maps, projects, address locators, and geoprocessing results.
Layer files, maps and basemaps in projects, and address locators are containers that reference data that resides on local disk, across a local area network, or in an enterprise geodatabase. The tools in the Package toolset allow you to consolidate data resources into a single folder location using the consolidation tools or into a single compressed file using the package tools. You can use the tools in the Package toolset to organize and share data, maps, address locators, and geoprocessing workflows.
You can share packages using standard file transfer techniques or by publishing them to ArcGIS Online 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 (an .aprx file) and referenced maps and data into a specified output folder.
Consolidates one or more toolboxes into a specified output folder.
Generates tiles from a map and packages them as a single tile package or multiple smaller tile packages.
Packages maps and basemaps along with all referenced data sources into a single .mmpk file.
Creates a mobile scene package file (.mspk) from one or more scenes for use across the ArcGIS system.
Creates a multiscale mesh of polygons that can be used as index polygons when creating vector tile packages.
Generates vector tiles from a map or basemap and packages the tiles in a single .vtpk file.
Extracts the contents of a package to a specified folder. The output folder will be updated with the extracted contents of the input package.
Packages one or more layers and all referenced data sources to create a single compressed .lpkx file.
Packages a locator or composite locator and creates a single compressed .gcpk file.
Packages a map and all referenced data sources to create a single compressed .mpkx file.
Consolidates and packages a project file (.aprx) of referenced maps and data to a packaged project file (.ppkx).
Packages one or more geoprocessing results, including all tools and input and output datasets, into a single compressed file (.gpkx).
Shares a package by uploading it to ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise.
An overview of the Scene Layers toolset
The following table lists the tools in the Scene Layers toolset. These tools are for packaging scene layers and validating third-party scene layer packages.
Creates a scene layer package (.slpk) or scene layer content (.i3sREST) from a multipatch or 3D object feature layer input.
Creates a scene layer package (.slpk) or scene layer content (.i3sREST) from a building layer input.
Creates scene layer content (.slpk or .i3sREST) from OpenSceneGraph binary (OSGB) data.
Creates a point cloud scene layer package (.slpk) or scene layer content (.i3sREST) in the cloud from LAS, zLAS, LAZ, or LAS dataset input.
Creates a point scene layer package (.slpk) or scene layer content (.i3sREST) from a point feature layer.
Creates a scene layer package (.slpk file) from a voxel layer input.
Upgrades a scene layer package to the current I3S version in SLPK format or output to i3sREST format for use in ArcGIS Enterprise.
Evaluates a scene layer package (*.slpk or *.i3sREST) in a cloud store to determine its conformity to I3S specifications.
