This book is designed to help experienced ArcMap users transition to ArcGIS Pro. It focuses on what is different about ArcGIS Pro, so that you can leverage your current ArcMap knowledge to learn the new system and workflows quickly and efficiently.

Search for the keyword SWTP to find the data, a zip file named SwitchToProData. Install it directly on drive C of your computer and not in the Documents library or on Desktop. The extracted zip file will create a folder named SwitchToProData. It requires approximately 65 MB of space. All the data has been compiled from public sources and is redistributable with attribution to its creators.
