FAQ: Is it possible to open tile packages in ArcGIS Pro?

Question

Is it possible to open tile packages in ArcGIS Pro?

Answer

Tile packages (.tpk) can be created in ArcGIS Pro using the Create Map Tile Package tool. However, a tile package cannot be opened directly, or be added to an ArcGIS Pro project either by using the Add Data button or by dragging the package from the folder and dropping it in the application. For more information on supported data types in ArcGIS Pro, see the following help page: Supported data types and items.

Tile packages can be used as inputs or outputs to ArcGIS Pro operations or geoprocessing tools. Hence, users must extract the tile package first using the Extract Package (Data Management) tool in ArcGIS Pro. The extracted package results in a raster or a layer file that can be opened and displayed in ArcGIS Pro.
