ArcGIS Publisher

An extension for ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap

ArcGIS Publisher makes it easy to share digital versions of maps and data. Use ArcGIS Publisher to convert ArcGIS Pro maps to mobile map packages viewable with the free Explorer for ArcGIS iOS and Android app. And, convert ArcMap and ArcGlobe documents to published map files for ArcReader. Your mobile maps also work on apps from AppStudio for ArcGIS or ArcGIS Runtime SDK.
