Mastering ArcGIS Pro

Mastering ArcGIS Pro

Although the concepts of GIS have remained fairly constant over time, the software is continually evolving. With the release of ArcGIS Pro, the latest software in the Esri GIS family, a new generation of GIS has arrived. ArcGIS Pro has a 64-bit, multithreaded architecture, uses ribbon-style menus, integrates 2D and 3D applications, and is closely tied to ArcGIS Online.

The Mastering ArcGIS Pro series represents a major revision of
Mastering ArcGIS, a book that covered GIS concepts and skills using the ArcGIS Desktop programs of ArcMap and ArcCatalog. Although the GIS concepts largely remain the same in both texts, the implementation, and in some cases the terminology, has changed. The new software prompted a reorganization of the book in the first edition, and the second edition has retained these changes.

First, the book has been refocused on the basics of GIS. Partly for this reason, and partly to better match the rhythm of a semester, the book is now presented in 12 chapters, leaving time for instructors to better incorporate exams and projects within the semester. Some of the more advanced and less frequently used skills, such as planar topology and standards-based metadata, have been left for students to explore on their own. The ArcGIS Pro software capabilities and interface are continuing to evolve.

Although the basic capabilities of ArcGIS Pro have not much changed since the first edition, the interface has many small changes. This second edition has been updated to reflect many small changes to the interface between versions 2.2 and 2.8.
