Hello all,

please, is there way how to use one symbolized "Map" in other projects just as a "reference" map?

I have many projects with the same group of data and I dont want to update every of the project, when it needs to update. I want to update (for example symbology or query) just in one of them and in others it will change automatically because there will be data just referenced.

 

Thanks a lot for your idea.

Naty

Locally, @DanPatterson 's answer is the way to go, but you'll still run into the problem of needing to re-import the map every time you make updates to the "source" map.

If it's an option for you, you might consider sharing the map as a Web Map through AGOL or Portal. Pro will then notify you when updates have been made to the web map, making it easy to keep your projects in sync.

perhaps Save a map file—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

there are other "share" options within the vicinity of that help topic

Thank you for your answers.

Yes, in some cases it is convenient for me and I will use shared web map from the portal. But there are still cases where probably I will be forced to keep and update "the same group of data" in more projects for now. Hope it will change in the future and som way of "referenced map" will be available soon.

 

Thanks a lot,

Naty
