FAQ: Does ArcGIS Pro have Data Driven Pages functionality?
Does ArcGIS Pro have Data Driven Pages functionality?
ArcGIS Pro does provide the ability to create a series of layout pages from a single layout similar to Data Driven Pages in ArcMap, but in ArcGIS Pro, the term Map Series is used to describe the functionality. Both Data Driven Pages and Map Series use an index layer to define the extents of the map frame.
The following table shows the comparison between Data Driven Pages and Map Series:
Data Driven Pages (ArcMap)
