The Product Advocacy team at Esri is excited to introduce an unofficial recurring GeoNet series: “This Week’s Picks.” As Product Advocacy Leads, we are always on the lookout for content that is compelling and insightful but also relevant. "This Week's Picks" aims to share some of our favorites with you.
For This Week's Picks – ArcGIS Pro, the theme is editing within the broader context of Data Management. We all know that data management is a key aspect of the ArcGIS Platform. Data prep, compilation and management are essential to get to the eventual end goal. That goal may also require creating, modifying, querying or deleting features. As such, I will be highlighting 3 blogs this week that touch on some of these concepts.
1. For users newer to ArcGIS Pro editing, an excellent blog from this summer explaining the editing experience:
Why I like it: A common ArcGIS Pro editing support topic involves how it is “different” than ArcMap. For users new to ArcGIS Pro editing, this blog breaks down ArcGIS Pro editing and explains in a clear way how it differs from ArcMap. It also clarifies some of the misconceptions about editing in Pro.

2. The next blog is geared toward user’s who have an editing workflow involving ArcGIS Enterprise alongside ArcGIS Pro and want to increase editing and querying performance:
Why I like it: This blog discusses how to leverage sourceSpatialReference with feature services in ArcGIS Pro (new at 2.4) in your editing and querying workflows. This enhancement allows server to do less work on the back end by avoiding projecting the data on the fly. This is particularly good for large datasets and complex geometries. (NOTE: Requires ArcGIS Server 10.7.1 and later)
3. The last blog showcases some of the expanded offline editing capabilities in ArcGIS Pro, specifically with sync and mobile geodatabases:
Why I like it: Details a lightweight workflow for extending feature service capabilities to use mobile geodatabases and sync capabilities so that you can bring data offline for editing and other analysis and still sync back with enterprise environments.
