ArcGIS Pro is the latest professional desktop GIS application from Esri. Some of its key features include integration with ArcGIS Online and Python 3, combined 2D and 3D data analysis and visualization capabilities, and 64 bit architecture. The video below does an excellent job demonstrating some of its key capabilities:

ArcGIS Pro is resource-intensive. Before installing, make sure your computer meets the minimum, if not recommended requirements, to run this software.

Visit Esri's ArcGIS Pro system requirements page. Note that the requirements will differ by ArcGIS Pro version; select the version of ArcGIS Pro you plan to install, and click the link to run a diagnostic to check your computer's hardware.

If you are an ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap) user, we strongly recommend transitioning to ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS Desktop 10.8.1, the latest version of the ArcGIS Desktop suite software, will be supported until March 2, 2026. However, Esri will no longer be releasing new features or enhancements for the software and will instead be focusing on ArcGIS Pro. 

Projects created in ArcMap (.mxd files) can be imported into ArcGIS Pro (but not vice versa). Documentation on this process is available here
