Introducing ArcGIS Notebooks in ArcGIS Pro

In ArcGIS Pro 2.5 you can create, edit, and save Jupyter notebooks as part of your ArcGIS Pro project with ArcGIS Notebooks, Esri’s Jupyter notebook environment. You have the option to create a notebook as part of the ArcGIS Pro project and edit the notebook using the Jupyter interface, that now comes included in all editions of ArcGIS Pro 2.5. The notebooks you create in ArcGIS Pro will leverage the ArcGIS Pro Python environment which you can customize through the Python Package Manager, the Python Command Prompt, or through Anaconda.

Why use ArcGIS Notebooks?

Getting started with ArcGIS Notebooks in Pro

In ArcGIS Pro 2.5, you can create or add a notebook to your project by going to Insert > New Notebook. Here you will name your new notebook or add an existing .ipynb file to the project.

Once you’ve added the notebook you can open it using the Catalog pane.

The integration of ArcGIS Notebooks enables you to easily switch between the intuitive GUI of ArcGIS Pro with the scripting and annotated interface of a Jupyter notebook – making for a complete data science workstation.

How do you get access to ArcGIS Notebooks in ArcGIS Pro?

It’s simple. Just install or upgrade to ArcGIS Pro 2.5 (Basic, Standard or Advanced). There is no additional installer, license or app that needs to be purchased.
