CrescentLink for ArcGIS Pro

What to Know Before Migrating...


Your existing GEOGRAPH license for the ArcGIS Desktop extension will work for the ArcGIS Pro Add-In as well. There is no need to acquire a separate license.

However, you may need Esri licensing to use ArcGIS for Pro. Please contact your organization's Esri license administrator with any questions.

Geometric Network

ArcGIS Pro does not support the Geometric Network so it will need to be removed before migrating. For a step-by-step guide, please watch the following video: <Geometric Network Removal>

Backward Compatability

Due to differences between ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro, we recommend, that once your organization moves to ArcGIS Pro, you no longer use ArcGIS Desktop in production. Please back up your database and use a test environment before going live in a production environment.

How To Migrate Your ArcGIS Desktop mxd to ArcGIS Pro Project

Once the Geometric Network has been deleted, it's easy to convert your current map document into an ArcGIS Pro Project using the Import Map tool on the Insert Ribbon. This tool will help preserve map symbology as well as your database connection.

For a step-by-step guide, please watch the following video: <Import Map>

Project Planner Migration

Due to the differences between ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro, Annotations, Dimensions, and Staking Sheets will need to be set up initially per data set. New projects created in ArcGIS Pro will not be backward compatible with ArcGIS Desktop.  

For a step-by-step guide on how to set up Project Planner, please watch the following video: <How to Migrate Project Planner Layouts from Desktop to Pro>

Training Opportunities

GEOGRAPH will offer both quarterly CrescentLink training workshops and 1-on-1 sessions for your organization utilizing ArcGIS Pro. Reach out to your account manager for more information or to sign up.
