ArcGIS Pro can export layer packages that combine data and symbology into a single, easily transportable package format. This makes layers easy to share across projects.
- [Instructor] Sharing data is as easy…as making a copy of the geo database…that's in the projects home folder.…But if you want to share data and the symbology…choices that you've made to best visualize that data,…you'll want to export a layer package.…A layer package bundles up the data source…and the symbology into a single file…that's easy to upload to the web or email to colleagues.…In this world map I have symbolized each country…with its own color.…If I'm working with a team and want…to ensure that all of their world maps…use the same colors, it would obviously…be rather tedious to go through…and identify each color for each country.…
Instead I'll simply select the layer…over in the contents pane and then I'll go…up to the share tab.…In the save as group there's an option called layer file.…This will export the symbology and a reference…to the data source in my projects geo database.…For some organizations that have a centralized…geo spatial data server that might work out just fine,…since my colleagues will reference the same data…
