Transition ArcMap Content by May 2023


ArcGIS ArcMap Software

Esri has announced that ArcMap version 10.8.2 is the final update for the ArcMap software package. We recommend that ArcMap users begin transitioning to ArcGIS Pro at this time. Esri has informed OIT that ArcMap will only be available by special request starting in May 2023 and will be unavailable for distribution after February 2024. 

What you should do before May 2023:

  • Migrate existing ArcMap geodatabases to ArcGIS Pro.
  • Save a final version of existing maps, scenes, and globes in ArcMap, then confirm feature compatibility by opening each file in ArcGIS Pro.
  • Convert ArcMap Styles to ArcGIS Pro styles.
  • Update ArcMap Python 2 scripts for ArcGIS Pro compatible using Python 3.
  • Export backup copies of existing ArcMap files to PDF, SVG, EPS, and other formats. 

Start by reading OIT’s ArcMap Transition FAQ (link below), for information and links to help you begin the migration process from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro. Additional Esri resources are available in Esri’s ArcGIS Pro Migration Guide. If you would like to meet with a Research Computing Support consultant to discuss the best way to transition to ArcGIS Pro, please contact OIT at 865-974-9900 or submit a request online.
