Good news for users of ArcGIS Pro, Esri has released an update to ArcGIS Pro via version 2.2.2. In this latest update and patch there are a large number of fixes and updates. Recall, ArcGIS Pro 2.2 was released in the summer to coincide with the 2018 ESRI UC. Have you made the switch yet?

Via the Esri blogs, the @ArcGISPro team announced and shared release notes for ArcGIS Pro 2.2 as well as a lengthy list of issues addressed at Pro 2.2.2. It should be noted that there is no new functionality with this patch; rather, the focus is on performance and fixes.  Some of the noteworthy bugs fixed include:

  • Map services published from ArcMap to ArcGIS Server fail to be overwritten using ArcGIS Pro
  • Connecting to PostgreSQL Geodatabase crashes ArcCatalog
  • Incorrect distance constraint is applied when editing 3D geometry
  • When using local custom data collection, the Color Coded Layer tool can crash the application
  • The Enrich Layer tool cannot be canceled
  • Vector tiles do not draw when reprojected to a custom projected coordinate system
  • Specific URLs cause the application to crash when added from the path
  • Performance issue when converting large GeoJSON files
  • The application does not properly close a pop-up resulting in a crash
  • Generating a DSM or DEM using orthomapping will fail if the output path is long

And much more! The complete list of updates is described in the release notes.

Learning ArcGIS Pro

Many ArcGIS users have yet to make the switch to ArcGIS Pro. However, it doesn’t have to be a daunting task! There are several convenient ways to ease in and make the transition.  For example, via the Esri Academy website, you can take advantage of a free, 2-hour course titled Get Started With  ArcGIS Pro.  Additionally, for some self-paced learning, there are a number of useful videos to help acquaint you with Pro, including:

Finally, on Sept 5, 2018, the Esri MOOC Cartography commenced. This 6-week hands-on learning resource is a fabulous way to learn how to make amazing maps using ArcGIS Pro. Online training is a great way to ease into making the switch to Pro! See more about the Cartography MOOC Here

“I am taking the MOOC. We do not use ArcPro at work yet. This is the first time I am touching it. I can do this at home. At the starting gate, you will realize the differences between desktop and pro. I am really excited to be able to work with the new capabilities.” Christina McCullough, GISP
