This is the code I write and it gives me following error. 

# reading the csv file containing wildfire data
fires_dataset=pd.read_csv(r'D:/UCALGARY/urbanGIS/lab4/lab4data/fires_data.csv',encoding='mac_roman')

# specify the location you want the store your point features after running the XY to Point tool.
fire_data_output = r'D:/UCALGARY/urban GIS/lab4/lab4ugis/lab4ugis.aprx'

fires_data = arcpy.management.XYTableToPoint(fires_dataset,fire_data_output, 'fire_location_longitude', 'fire_location_latitude')

Error

I don't think a pandas dataframe is an allowed input.  I would just reference the path to the csv in arcpy.management.XYTableToPoint and do away with any pandas.

You need to pass a feature class not an ArcGIS Pro aprx file as the output.

Hi

The second parameter should be a new feature class name (something like r'D:\temp\abc.gdb\fc') and not an aprx.

 

Have fun
