Just in Time for ESRIUC - ArcGIS Pro Gets an Update to R 2.2

Just in time for UC, Esri has announced an update of “Pro” to version 2.2.

Did U Know… “Pro” is customizable, extensible, and, while it is a completely new application, supports easy migration of existing ArcGIS Desktop documents, data, and tools. We share some ArcGIS Pro migration tips, a look at what ArcGIS Pro is, and a list of 10 useful resources. If you already have an ArcGIS desktop license, you already have access to Pro! Users of ArcGIS Pro are treated to a number of new enhancements, fixes, and new functionality. Some of the highlights of Pro at 2.2 include:

  1. Full Motion Video (FMV) can play and analyze video data that is geospatially enabled. This allows the projection and display of the video frame footprint and sensor position on the map while the video plays.
  2. stream layer is a new layer type that displays real-time streaming data. It references a stream service as its data source.
  3. A new analysis tool, Slice is included among the other Interactive Analysis tools in the 3D Exploratory Analysis group on the Analysis tab.
  4. Save a copy of an item’s ArcGIS metadata as an HTML or XML file on disk.
  5. When you run ArcGIS Pro without signing in to your organization or a licensing portal, the maps in your basemap gallery will be vector basemaps. New maps and scenes will be created with vector basemaps.
  6. You can create a point feature layer and an associated point feature class directly from tabular data.
  7. You can now create a local or global scene directly when you create a scene.
  8. Pop-ups can be enabled on vector tile layers with an associated web feature layer or on tiles with feature-level identity.
  9. Pop-ups have an improved user experience for showing attribute information in a dockable pane.
  10. A new chart type, Data Clock, has been added as a way to visualize data change over time.
