All levels of ArcGIS Desktop include the following tools:
- ArcMap – The 32-bit Windows program for map creation and analysis.
- ArcGIS Pro – The 64-bit Windows program for map creation and analysis.
- ArcGIS Online – Create and share maps in your web browser.
Use the Windows 32-bit ArcMap program to:
- Build Maps
- Use maps to visualize, analyze, compare and interpret spatial data in 2D and 3D.
- Add boundaries and data to map layers from a data file, database, ArcGIS online, and ArcCatalog.
- Perform Analyses with Geoprocessing
- Convert multiple sources to a single map projection.
- Overlay population density with distance to parks calculations to optimize new park locations.
- Manage Geographic Data
- Data sources include databases and geodatabases, raster images, tabular data (e.g. Excel), shapefiles, and coverages (vector data and attributes).
Use ArcGIS Pro to do many of the same tasks you do in ArcMap, but with a modern ribbon interface and 64-bit program:
- Create and manage data.
- Manage data in a geodatabase.
- Edit geographic data.
- Work with raster datasets (images and gridded data).
- Create 2D and 3D features.
- Create topology rules for your data.
Use ArcGIS Online as your collaborative web GIS to source and share data.
- Create maps and scenes.
- A scene acts as a 3D workspace for viewing 2D and 3D data locally and globally
- Collaborate and share data.
- Define which persons and groups have access to private data, or share publicly in web pages, blogs, and social media.
