Go Pro or go home. As you embrace Esri's newest platform, our goal is to ensure there are as few speed bumps along the way as possible.
Marco Desktop for Pro is designed to inventory Layer Files (.lyrx) and ArcGIS Pro Map Projects (.aprx), discover broken data references, and even better? Fix any pesky data issues. It goes a step further by allowing you to convert ArcGIS Map Documents to ArcGIS Pro Map Projects in bulk. An Add-In for ArcGIS Pro, it combines many of the features we know and love from Marco Desktop.
AUTOMATE YOUR INVENTORY
As organizations begin to move from ArcGIS Desktop to ArcGIS Pro, knowing what data has and has not yet been migrated will become a key piece of information.
Similar to the Data Inventory tools within Marco Desktop, Marco Desktop for Pro's Data tools help record those geospatial files currently available on the network as well as details about their health and status. With this toolset, all of the focus is on ArcGIS Pro Map Projects (.aprx) and Layer Files (.lyrx) as they are native to this new environment.
DATA ALTERATION GONE PRO
In order to get the most out of our spatial data, we want to make sure it is in the best possible shape. Marco Desktop for Pro does just that, providing you with the tools to better manage data within ArcGIS Pro - like removing broken layers from an otherwise pristine ArcGIS Pro Map Project.
REPAIR BROKEN DATA SOURCES
Have you been plagued with broken links ever since data was moved to a different drive? Undergoing a big spatial data move and want to safeguard against such a sticky situation?
Tools within Marco Desktop for Pro - similar to those within Marco Desktop - are designed to not only find those ArcGIS Pro Map Projects and Layer Files that contain broken data references, but also to discover the correct locations of files for easy clean-up. Specialized features allow you to redefine these paths in a central location referred to as a Remap File, further automating spatial data fixes as well as providing a record of changes made for your own peace of mind.
MIGRATE TO ARCGIS PRO
While ArcGIS Pro itself allows you to quickly convert a single ArcGIS Map Document (.mxd) into an ArcGIS Pro Map Project (.aprx) file with the click of a button, it may slow productivity when working with the conversion of multiple documents.
For data migrations that involves just that, we have the solution. Marco Desktop for Pro includes functionality to upgrade multiple ArcGIS Map Document (.mxd) files at a time as well as converting Layer Files from one format (.lyr) to another (.lyrx), quickly standing them up on the ArcGIS Pro platform while the data is stored in a location of your choosing.
