ArcMap is the world standard software tool for day-to-day GIS work. It’s one of several modules in the ArcGIS software suite published by Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (Esri). While ArcMap is still the workhorse for everyday cartography and spatial analysis work, it is gradually being displaced by ArcGIS Pro. Because of its 64-bit architecture, PRO outperforms the 32-bit ArcMap product on processing intensive tasks. Unlike it’s predecessor, PRO is specifically designed for tight integration with cloud-based GIS products and processes. We found some articles that describe the capability and availability of these basic software tools.
