Currently we use the PDF to Tiff tool in ArcGIS ArcMap, and wish it to be ported to ArcGIS Pro.  We have lots of PDFs, and we sometimes receive PDFs from member cities in our County.  We convert them, then georeference them, as backdrops for data investigation.  We receive regular PDFs.  


Please bring this to pro


Seconded. The National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) releases sidescan sonar data in the GeoPDF format. See https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/nos/H10001-H12000/H11695.htmlThe conversion tool is necessary to properly work with these data.


I also use this tool regularly.


This sounds useful, but what about just being able to georeference single page pdf's in-situ, without conversion?


Matt, I guess that is now being requested here: https://community.esri.com/ideas/17412 


Agreed AJ.  We are GeoPDF to GeoTIFF in 2 of our current ArcGIS workflows.  With no tool in Pro, we will have to look at other programs to meet the need.


I have been just using QGIS for the conversion. Its so easy a caveman can dot it and is uber fast and and free.

How are we supposed to fully utilise ArcGIS Pro if basic functionality that exists in ArcMap is not ported across?  When something gets reviewed, what does that actually mean?  Everything that is in ArcMap, should be in ArcGIS Pro as a starter!

Status changed to: In Product Plan

I also use pdfs in my workflows to. It makes it so much easier to update my mapping application with emergency closures. It is one the reasons of why I still use ArcMap.

ArcGIS Pro should also be able to create map packages to share with on ArcGIS Online. I get many people who download my map packages.
