Introducing ArcGIS Production Mapping

ArcGIS Production Mapping is a configurable extension that optimizes and tailors geographic information system (GIS) production to the way your organization works. It is a specification-driven topographic mapping software for national civilian mapping agencies and authoritative content producers. This extension provides specialized tools to automate the production process from beginning to end through standardization, repeatability, and configuration. This includes tools for data creation and feature extraction from imagery; data management, validation, and visualization; and high-quality, advanced cartographic production and Web GIS integration.

What can you do with ArcGIS Production Mapping?

Consistent workflows

ArcGIS Production Mapping ensures consistency across operations by providing task-based workflows built using ArcGIS Workflow Manager. Each workflow is designed as a simple, focused task to be performed by a single technician. This makes it easy for technicians to understand what work they are required to do.

Automated generalization

ArcGIS Production Mapping provides out-of-the-box generalization models to automate the creation of maps, charts, and data products at any scale based on the unique characteristics of different data themes. The models automate multi-scale mapping efforts to produce any output scale of data or cartographic product from a single best scale database.
