Get started with ArcGIS for Microsoft 365

The Microsoft and ArcGIS component integrations have a single home in the ArcGIS for Microsoft 365 product family.

With ArcGIS for Microsoft 365, you can implement spatial analytics in your day-to-day Microsoft workflows. Map your ArcGIS for Excel data, find your documents geographically using ArcGIS for SharePoint, broaden your business insights using ArcGIS for Power BI, and collaborate on maps with ArcGIS for Teams. Many of these processes can be made even easier using ArcGIS Connectors for Power Automate.

ArcGIS for Excel

Bring ArcGIS location services and mapping capabilities, such as ArcGIS Living Atlas and ArcGIS Online, into Microsoft Excel. Create an interactive map that includes data from spreadsheet rows and ArcGIS layers without leaving the Excel environment. Then, publish and share the map to your ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise organization. On the ArcGIS tab in Microsoft Excel, you can use ArcGIS tools to create and manage maps, run functions for analyzing data including demographics around features, and add data from pivot tables for visualization on a map.
