"I don't know how many times I can keep saying this, but this is a gamechanger. It completely changes how Esri users can approach solutions." - ArcGIS Pro Training Author

Use SQL to master all data in attribute tables, vector geometry, and even raster data. Connect to many sources at once and run SQL that in the same query simultaneously uses multiple different enterprise geodatabases, file geodatabases, and other data sources, and then do a SELECT INTO to push the results into a new table in a file geodatabase within your Pro project. Transform data in-place within existing storage or within SQL for ArcGIS Pro's own, ultra fast, scratchpad data store. SQL plays with all: Keep up with the fastest enterprise DBMS and run standalone in local storage with massive, parallel speed. Get it done right, and get it done fast with SQL for ArcGIS Pro.

The Best of Both Worlds

SQL for ArcGIS Pro combines the visual and spatial power of GIS in ArcGIS Pro with the massive data manipulation power of built-in parallel SQL: Easily accomplish what Pro alone or traditional DBMS tools cannot do. Add SQL to ArcGIS Pro to get both a killer parallel SQL and the world's foremost GIS at the same time.

"First, the solution works great!! Now, I can enter any SQL query, and get a feature class out of it. That is a game-changer." - SQL for ArcGIS Pro user

Traditional DBMS tools and ArcGIS Pro come with painful tradeoffs: Classic DBMS tools provide great DBMS capabilities but are often limited by insufficient spatial know-how, difficult spatial workflow and challenging administration, while ArcGIS Pro works great for many GIS tasks but is held back by not having database infrastructure and real SQL built in. SQL for ArcGIS Pro adds real SQL and a massively powerful internal database to turbocharge what you can do in your ArcGIS Pro projects. It's all packaged within a single, clean, easy to use, add-in package that installs and launches from ArcGIS Pro easier than Microsoft Excel.

"[SQL for ArcGIS Pro]'s function works flawlessly, seamlessly piping the data from SQL Server, through the [SQL for ArcGIS Pro] function and the result back out to the table on SQL Server. It has replaced a slow ArcPy script of a few hundred lines with a few lines of SQL which achieve the same near instantaneously. The ability to use [SQL for ArcGIS Pro] to supplement functions missing from other DBMS is amazingly powerful." - Corporate SQL Server setup, Forum post .

SQL for ArcGIS Pro was created from the ground up for ultrafast, parallel spatial SQL in GIS. It automatically runs SQL fully CPU parallel and GPU parallel, using all CPU threads and potentially thousands of GPU cores. SQL for ArcGIS Pro connects brilliantly to enterprise DBMS because SQL for ArcGIS Pro itself is one of the most powerful spatial database packages ever created. SQL for ArcGIS Pro includes dataports for hundreds of data formats and data sources, plus hundreds of military-grade, high precision spatial SQL functions, seamlessly integrated with incredibly fast internal scratchpad storage, for the world's best desktop SQL. Get it all for one low price: only $145, fully paid. Your mighty ArcGIS Pro installation deserves no less.

"To create a landform classification from TPI’s took 13 days in SAGA. In [SQL for ArcGIS Pro], it can be done in two 15-minute operations! Plus, I have the flexibility to alter the code and include TPIs at 3 scales for example, not 2. TWI is also fast in [SQL for ArcGIS Pro]. The whole model building can now be done in [SQL for ArcGIS Pro] (no R or SAGA) as well as the post analysis. This is literally saving me weeks of processing time if not months!" - Forum post

SQL for ArcGIS Pro utilizes Esri's own code, the Esri File Geodatabase API, to connect to and work with file geodatabases. SQL for ArcGIS Pro therefore has the same limitations that are imposed by the Esri File Geodatabase API. While the Esri File Geodatabase API supports reading the schema and data of complex geodatabase types, the API does not honor geodatabase behavior on inserts, deletes or updates to the following dataset types:

You may be able to see data in such complex database types but you can't edit them. In addition, the Esri File Geodatabase API does not permit any connection to, viewing, or work with rasters in the file geodatabase (Raster Dataset, Raster Catalog, Mosaic Datasets and Raster Attributes). Vertical Datums are not supported.
