GOM3 News - April 2019

GOM3 in ArcGIS Pro

The April update includes the official release of the GOM3 Add-in for ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS Pro is the successor to ArcGIS Desktop, a 64-bit application combining 2-D maps, 3-D scenes and GIS file management. It is the future of desktop GIS for Esri and GOM3. Though support for ArcGIS Desktop will continue far into the future, development of functionality for ArcGIS Desktop will wind down while functionality in Pro ramps up.

We encourage everyone to try out their existing work flows in ArcGIS Pro when possible, whether that's exploring data, making maps or generating new output from analytical tools. ArcGIS Pro can be installed on the same computer as ArcGIS Desktop without conflicts. The GOM3 Add-in supports versions 2.3 and above. As always we are eager for your feedback and we will have much more information at the user conference (see below).
