Analysis tools in ArcGIS Pro

Some geoprocessing tools in ArcMap are not available in ArcGIS Pro. Namely, geoprocessing tools that process data formats that are not supported in ArcGIS Pro are not available in ArcGIS Pro but often have alternatives, which are listed below.

Python scripts and ModelBuilder models built in ArcMap that use tools not available in ArcGIS Pro do not function and require updates.

Learn more about analysing geoprocessing tools, toolboxes, and Python scripts for ArcGIS Pro compatibility.

  • 3D analyst tools
  • Coverage tools

    Coverages are not supported in ArcGIS Pro, so the entire toolbox has been removed.

    Note: Learn how to convert representations for use in ArcGIS Pro

    • Add Representations

    • Calculate Representation Rule

    • Drop Representation

    • Select Feature By Override

    • Set Layer Representation

    • Set Representation Control Point At Intersect

    • Set Representation Control Point By Angle

    • Import CAD Annotation

    Note: CAD text in ArcGIS Pro can be converted to an annotation feature class using the Convert Labels To Annotation tool.

    Learn about Annotation in ArcGIS Pro.


    Note: Coverages are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

    • Feature Class To Coverage

    • Import Coverage Annotation

    • Import From E00



    Note: Metadata geoprocessing tools are not available in ArcGIS Pro; however, you can automate metadata workflows using the arcpy.metadata module.

    • Upgrade Spatial Reference

      Note: The Upgrade Spatial Reference tool is primarily used with personal geodatabase feature classes, which are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

    Geometric Network

    Note: Geometric networks are a read-only dataset in ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS Pro includes two capabilities you can use to manage, model, and analyze network systems: the Trace Network and the Utility Network.

    • Add Edge-Edge Connectivity Rule To Geometric Network

    • Add Edge-Junction Connectivity Rule To Geometry Network

    • Create Geometric Network

    • Find Disconnected Features in Geometric Network

    • Rebuild Geometric Network

    • Remove Connectivity Rule From Geometric Network

    • Remove Empty Feature Class From Geometric Network

    • Set Flow Direction

    • Trace Geometric Network

    • Verify And Repair Geometric Network Connectivity


    • Make Graph

    • Save Graph

      Note: Graphing and charting capabilities in ArcGIS Pro have been redesigned. Graphs and graph templates created in ArcMap are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

      You can use the ArcPy Chart class to automate the creation of charts in ArcGIS Pro.

      Additionally, you can author a layer with charts, save the layer as a layer file, and set that layer file as the Symbology property for custom script tool or model tool output parameters. When the script or model tool is run, the charts will be automatically created for the new output datasets.


    Raster Catalog

    Note: Raster catalogs are a read-only dataset in ArcGIS Pro. Learn about migrating raster catalogs to mosaic datasets.

    • Copy Raster Catalog Items

    • Create Raster Catalog

    • Delete Raster Catalog Items

    • Export Raster Catalog Paths

    • Make Raster Catalog Layer

    • Raster Catalog To Raster Dataset

    • Repair Raster Catalog Paths

    • Workspace To Raster Catalog


    • Create ArcInfo Workspace

    • Create ArcSDE Connection File

      Note: The Create ArcSDE Connection File tool has been replaced by the Create Database Connection tool.

    • Create Personal GDB

      Note: Personal geodatabases are not supported in ArcGIS Pro.

  • Network analyst tools


    • Find Closest Facilities

    • Find Routes

    • Generate Service Areas

    • Make Vehicle Routing Problem Layer

    • Solve Location-Allocation

    • Update Traffic Data

    • Update Traffic Incidents

    Note: These tools, which are primarily used to set up network analysis web services, will be available in a future release of ArcGIS Pro.

    ArcGIS Pro provides the same and enhanced network analysis capabilities available in the Server toolset through other tools in the Network Analyst toolbox, Ready To Use Network Analysis tools, and the interactive network analysis workflow.

  • Parcel fabric tools

    The legacy Parcel Fabric for ArcMap is supported as a read-only dataset in ArcGIS Pro. You cannot create new or edit existing Parcel Fabrics for ArcMap in ArcGIS Pro, so the entire toolbox has been removed.

    ArcGIS Pro includes an enhanced parcel fabric that provides a comprehensive framework for managing, editing, and sharing parcel data in ArcGIS Enterprise, including the Parcel toolbox.

  • Schematics tools

    Legacy schematics are not supported in ArcGIS Pro, so the entire toolbox has been removed.

    Utility Network schematic diagrams provide the capability to generate symbolic and simplified representations of the geographic features in a network.

  • Server tools


    • Delete Globe Server Cache

    • Manage Globe Server Cache Tiles

    • Upgrade Map Server Cache Storage Format


    • MXD to Web Map

      Note: You can use the ArcPy SignInToPortal function to sign in to a portal.

    • Sign Out From Portal

  • Tracking analyst tools

    The ArcGIS Tracking Analyst extension is not yet available in ArcGIS Pro.

    One of the most commonly used features of Tracking Analyst, the data clock, is available as a core chart type.
