The ability to georeference vector data is super useful and was available in ArcMap via the Spatial Adjustment Toolbar. Can this be made available in ArcGIS Pro?
Simon, is there a specific editing tool you're looking for over others?
Here is a response that we've put out on GeoNet previously to give an idea of where the development team is (from Rubbersheeting (Spatial Adjustment) License in ArcGIS Pro ):
At Pro 1.0, we added the Transform tool that supports similarity (2D/3D) and affine transformation methods and support for importing ArcMap link files. For the near term, we are planning on adding rubbersheeting capabilities (most likely as it’s own tool) and the Attribute Transfer tool. Near-term means in the next couple of releases so given that the development work for Pro 2.2 is nearly complete, these capabilities will likely be coming for either 2.3 or 2.4.
Edge matching would be the final tool that would round out the Spatial Adjustment toolbar and that is slated to come after rubbersheeting and attribute transfer.
I'm sure this comment will come to you as good news and bad news. The good news is that licensing requirements haven't changed between ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro, and more good news is that the capabilities of the ArcMap Spatial Adjustment toolbar will be coming to ArcGIS Pro. They just aren't in there yet (that's the bad news).
I hope this info helps.
Thanks Kory, this is useful information and I suppose because I am used to viewing the Spatial Adjustment tools in ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap) I assumed the tools would be found in a ribbon rather than as a set of tools within the edit toolbar.
I am looking simply for the ability to create displacement links from a known geometry location to a coordinate location and use whatever tool is appropriate to gain a good georeference for the vector data in question.
Thanks again for your information it is good to know the tools will likely all be there in ArcGIS Pro by 2.4
Rubbersheet will be part of the Transform editing tool in ArcGIS Pro 2.4.
Thanks for letting me know Kory Kramer I look froward to seeing it in the next iteration :-)
For anybody following this idea, ArcGIS Pro has nearly all of the functionality from the Spatial Adjustment toolbar with the exception of Edge Match: Using the Edge Match tool—Help | ArcGIS Desktop Currently, in Pro, this functionality is possible through the Generate Edgematch Links—Help | ArcGIS Desktop tool. Just wondering how many people are looking for this feature through an editing command.
Just figured out a good way to georeference vectors in ArcPro. The key is to export the source layer to a CAD file. This can be done with the tool Export to CAD. Once you have a CAD file (or *.dwg). Highlight in the TOC the part of it that you want to be georeferenced (usually the Polyline portion). Once that portion is highlighted there will be a purple "CAD Layer manage" tab at the top. Once you go into the "CAD Layer manage" tab you can select Georeference. Note** This Georeference tool is different from the tool found under the Imagery tab**. This tool will allow you to set 2 control points only, which is not ideal but it seems to get the job done. Once your source layer matches up with the target layer you can use CAD to Geodatabase to convert the *.dwg files back into *.shp files if needed for further analysis.
