ArcGIS Pro is a new application that’s part of ArcGIS for Desktop. You can use it to create informative maps and visualizations quickly. ArcGIS Pro includes scientific tools for answering tough questions via spatial analysis, such as “How are these places related?” or “How can I predict what might happen here during a major storm?”
Using ArcGIS Pro, you can create and publish both 2D and 3D content to look at problems from all angles (literally!). You can also make what you create in ArcGIS Pro available to others using ArcGIS Online or your own server portal.
ArcGIS Pro is a 64-bit, multithreaded application that runs on Windows. It’s fast, incredibly powerful, and has a beautiful user interface.
