What's New in ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop
ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop introduces a new and exciting application called ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS Pro is 64-bit software that is fast, efficient and offers a contextual interface for completing your GIS projects. If you need to view projects in 3D, you can do that right in the same place, without extra software. ArcGIS Pro is connected with your ArcGIS Online organisation account (or Portal for ArcGIS) so you can access important content, and easily share your work for collaboration, review, and final delivery. It's a new way of getting work done and we think you'll be delighted.
More Scientific Power
Serious science for serious results. The new analysis and automation tools in ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop will allow you to import your scientific data in native formats and perform unique spatial and temporal analyses to find non-obvious relationships. Discover changes over space and time to visualise new patterns, make accurate predictions and turn the unknown into the known.
New Ways to Make Your Maps Shine
Visualisation and design tools add serious value to your maps and ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop has more of these tools than ever. Add unique context to your maps with the new infographics tool to illustrate your story in a more complete way. Stylise and symbolise your information products with new options for creative and beautiful design.
Manage Data More Efficiently
Read, format, and create more types of data faster. ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop allows you to create mosaic datasets from scientific data and includes LAS 1.4 support for Lidar. You can also save time and effort by staying within ArcGIS for Desktop to convert your georeferenced PDFs into GeoTIFFs and viewing them in ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro.
