And just for anybody who still doesn't know how to do this, here are the explicit instructions:
I downloaded an esri vector basemap to a .pitemx format file, double clicked this file, and did see ArcGIS Pro open, but it was blank, and no data opened or displayed. The map I downloaded came from https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=fae788aa91e54244b161b59725dcbb2a
I was hoping to try and bring in vector maps into ArcGIS Pro to replace the raster background imagery-I basically need streets and building footprints in a lighter weight package than raster data.
That link did work, the .pitemx file did open up a map in Pro when I double clicked on it. How is that different than the map I linked to? Thanks for the working link! While I'm at it, have you found a working vector map showing building footprints within the US?
I honestly have no idea...
- When I tried to download it, I had the same issue you did with the OSM layer. I had to add it via "Data from Path"
You can read more about it / download the GeoJSONs by state here: GitHub - microsoft/USBuildingFootprints: Computer generated building footprints for the United State...
