Switching to ArcGIS Pro
from ArcMap

By Maribeth H. Price

This book helps users migrate more rapidly from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro by focusing on the differences in approach between the two rather than introducing ArcGIS Pro. It targets an audience of GIS users who are familiar with GIS concepts and ArcMap and who want to transition efficiently to ArcGIS Pro. The new software architecture and layout of ArcGIS Pro can make this transition a bit challenging for experienced users because it requires users to modify existing workflows or adopt new ones. Switching to ArcGIS Pro from ArcMap gets users, who are familiar with GIS and ArcMap, working productively in ArcGIS Pro by covering the most common and important workflows required for most GIS work and leveraging their prior expertise so they can more quickly adjust to ArcGIS Pro. The author, Maribeth H. Price, has been teaching GIS at the college level for more than 20 years and using Esri software for nearly 30 years. February 2019, 150 pp. E-book ISBN: 9781589485457 and paperback ISBN: 9781589485440.

Women and GIS: Mapping
Their Stories

By The Women of Esri Press

The remarkable women profiled in Women and GIS: Mapping Their Stories applied themselves and the power of maps, analysis, and GIS to overcome obstacles in their professions. These stories share the childhood experiences, misstarts, and challenges they faced; the lessons they learned; and their unique paths to achieving success. For example, ecologist Natalia Ocampo-Peñuela discovered through her intensive geography-based research on birds that many more birds are endangered than previously thought. She then parlayed that discovery into a charge to refine areas and species that are deemed threatened. Environmental conservationist Madison Vorva’s interests in activism have led her to apply GIS to a range of causes from successfully fighting against practices that put wild animals on the brink of extinction to showing kids—especially girls—how fun and important science and technology are.
