I am on a trial run of ArcGIS Pro, attempting a comparison vs. QGIS, which is free and has essentially no restrictions. I want to see if ArcGIS has more or better features, in particular I want to see its 3d capabilities compared to QGIS's 2.5d. I am trying to create vector maps and attribute tables which I will need on the job, importing and exporting info from a huge property database. After following the Venice training samples, I still can't create maps on my own. After a bunch of searching, I have discovered (now half-way through my free trial period) that I also need to install AcrGIS Maps. Ok. No, wait. I need Office on my computer. Apache is not acceptable. Why? And how many more hurdles will I have to overcome to be able to draw a polygon?
