Description: The goal of this workshop is to teach attendees how to extend ArcGIS Pro by using Python to create functionality that can run as standalone programs or operate inside the software as geoprocessing tools. 


Four topics will be covered: (1) ArcGIS Pro Python overview and setup; (2) Upgrading ArcGIS for Desktop tools for use in ArcGIS Pro; (3) Running Python scripts; and (4) Creating geoprocessing tools (script tools and Python Toolboxes).


JetBrains PyCharm (Community Edition) will be used for coding demonstrations and a brief introduction to its features and capabilities will be provided.


Intended Audience - GIS professionals familiar with the ArcGIS Pro and basic Python programming.


Learning Objectives

  • Extend the capabilities of ArcGIS Pro using Python.
  • Explore the relative merits and applicability of the Python extensibility options.
  • Create Python standalone programs and geoprocessing tools.

Format and Requirements: The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and demonstrations. Attendees will be able to follow along during the demonstrations, but those who wish to do so must bring their own laptop with ArcGIS Pro (latest version) and JetBrains PyCharm (Community Edition) installed. Anyone unfamiliar with PyCharm is advised to work through the introductory materials available from the JetBrains website ( before arriving at the workshop.
