ArcGIS Pro has a powerful set of software tools to visually explore and analyze spatial information. Point, line and area features (vector data) are both geographic objects on a map and records in a table. Such features can be selected by location or by the values stored in a feature’s record. These simple capabilities allow the GIS user to conduct complex analyses.
