We are excited to announce the release of version 1.2.4 of the ArcGIS API for Python. This version includes a number of bug fixes and updated documentation. You can find the list of reported bugs addressed in the release notes.

 

Please upgrade your package using the command in your Anaconda shell or terminal:

conda upgrade -c esri arcgis

If this is the first time you’re installing the Python API, use the following command:

conda install -c esri arcgis

If you installed using ArcGIS Pro, you can also update your package by using the 'Update Packages' tab from the 'Python' tab in Pro backstage.

 

Thank you,
ArcGIS API for Python team.

We are excited to announce the v1.2 of the ArcGIS API for Python to coincide with the Esri User Conference 2017. This is release packs a slew of new features, samples and numerous bug fixes to both the API and the samples. You can find the list of fixes and enhancements in the release notes.

 

Please upgrade your package using the command

conda upgrade -c esri arcgis

If this is the first time you’re installing the Python API, use the following command:

conda install -c esri arcgis

 

Note:

  • The v1.2 version requires Python interpreter 3.5 and later. This means, it would not work with the Python installed with ArcGIS Pro 1.3. We request our Pro users to upgrade to ArcGIS Pro 1.4 or 2.0 and reinstall the latest arcgis package.
  • If you were using v1.0 in Python 3.4 environment, please create a new environment and install either Python 3.5x or 3.6x and then install the arcgis API.

 

You can create a new environment in conda using the following command: In the command below, you can give a name of your choice and specify either 3.5 or 3.6 for Python version

conda create --name my_latest_python_env python=3.5

 

Then activate the environment and install the package using the command below:

activate my_latest_python_env
conda install -c esri arcgis

We are just a few hours from Esri User Conference 2017! Below are some sessions to attend if you would like to learn more about the ArcGIS API for Python.

Python API sessions @ UC 2017

Stop by the 'Developer Expo area' at Exhibit Hall B-1 to meet the team. We will be available all week to answer your questions, learn about your workflows and requirements. Hope to meet you at the UC!

At Esri, we are very excited that despite being a relatively new product, the Python API has generated a lot of interest and adoption from our user community. When we started to design this API, one of our goals was that it should be easy enough for a beginner while being intuitive and elegant enough for a seasoned Python developer. While the API has guideAPI reference and sample notebooks, we continue to develop talks, demos and courses for it. This blog is a spot to collect and curate them.

 

This does not have to contain only the resources from Esri, if you delivered a talk, please share it with us or post it as a comment.

Welcome and thanks for joining ArcGIS Python API group! We encourage you to read the product announcement and introduction blog from our lead developer.

 

We invite you to post a comment below to say “hello" and let us know what you hope to learn and experience in this group. Some of you have already been using and discussing about the beta version of the API on GeoNet. Thank you for being our early adopters and sharing your feedback, you can find those conversations mapped into this group.

 

We’re excited to collaborate with you and we look forward to seeing your contributions.

 

Thank you,
