[Instructor] - Geoprocessing is the term that Esri uses to denote any manipulation of data within ArcGIS Pro. Almost any data transformation, duplication, or modification is accomplished with geoprocessing tools and scripts. The tool set available will depend on your ArcGIS Pro license level and the extensions that have enabled for your account. The basic license for ArcGIS Pro grants access to about 300 geoprocessing tools. ArcGIS Pro Advanced, on the other hand, unlocks another 100 tools on top of that. Further, each of the available analysis extensions adds another handful of geoprocessing tools specific to their area of focus.
When you run a geoprocessing tool, you'll typically need to supply the input and output data sets. As well as any variables that the tool requires. There are also typically several options that you can choose from to customize the results to meet your needs. Every geoprocessing tool will be different in their input requirements, but they all output results to the project's geodatabase, unless you choose a different location. The output data sets are new files. Your original input data isn't touched when running a tool. So you don't need to worry about accidentally damaging or deleting your original data.
This allows for some protection when experimenting to get the exact results that you're after. However, keep in mind that your geodatabase might get cluttered with lots of files that represent intermediate steps within a larger process. You'll want to keep an eye on it and remove unneeded feature classes once you've finished a task in order to keep the geodatabase clutter free. Needless to say, there are lots of options when it comes to manipulating your spacial data. Way more than I can cover in this course. I'll show you a couple of the most common tools and how they work, but I highly encourage you to go through the toolbox and see what's available.
For detailed information on each tool available in ArcGIS Pro, you'll want to refer to pro.arcgis.com and click on the tool reference at the top of the page. Here you'll find detailed information on how to use each of the geoprocessing tools available in ArcGIS Pro.
