ArcGIS Pro in Mac OS X 10.9.1 crack

ArcGIS for Mac 10.9.1 has been developed for Windows Operating systems, but there are many users out there running ArcGIS Desktop on Macs. Two options are available.  The user can install Windows in Boot Camp, a native feature of the Apple Inc.’s OS X operating system, or they can use a virtualization program, such as Parallels or VMWare Fusion.  In order to assess which option to use, it is important to understand each option, their limitations, then to configure for best performance.  The Performance Engineering team has begun testing ArcGIS Desktop, including ArcGIS Pro, on the Apple MacBook Pro in order to develop performance benchmarks and configuration recommendations.

In general we have found the UX of ArcGIS Pro in these environments is quite good.  In general, the ArcGIS Pro system requirements should be considered best practices no matter

Boot Camp

Boot Camp is a utility for Macs that allows users to install and run Windows within a separate bootable partition.  Running Windows in Boot Camp is a native feature of the Mac OS X operating system, therefore this is the most financially affordable option since there is no additional software to be purchased.   However, users may not prefer this option since they are not able to run both OS X and Windows at the same time and a reboot is required to gain access to the Mac software.

The Windows partition is configured during the Boot Camp install; this is an important step for optimal performance.  Users should carefully consider how much CPU, Memory and hard disk will be available to the Windows OS, this is of course based upon how many cores and memory is available in the MacBook. The recommended minimum hardware configuration for the windows partition running ArcGIS Pro is:

  • 4 virtual CPU
  • 6 GB of RAM

Parallels with Boot Camp

If Windows has already been installed on a Mac using Boot Camp, users can use Parallels to run the Boot Camp partition as a virtual machine within OS X.  Users must purchase the Parallels software to use this virtualization option.  The advantage is that users can run both Windows and Mac applications without rebooting.

This is a suitable option for users whom have newer Macs with more powerful hardware resources in terms of CPU, Memory and an Nvidia graphics card like a GeForce GT 750M.  This is not a recommended option for users whom have older Macs with less than 4GB of RAM since Parallels puts more demand on the Mac’s processors and memory as both operating systems are running at the same time.  Our testing was performed on Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac Business Edition.

In order to gain access to the Windows OS, users work within a Parallels VM.  Configuring this VM is critical for optimal performance.   By default the VM is configured with 2vCPU, 1 GB of RAM and 512 MB of graphics memory.  This configuration is not suitable for a graphically intensive, multi-threaded application like ArcGIS Pro. The minimum hardware configuration for running ArcGIS Pro in Parallels is:

  • 4 virtual CPU
  • 6 GB of RAM
  • 1GB of graphics memory
  • Disable vertical synchronization

The following screenshot describes how the CPU and Memory can be configured within the Parallels hardware settings.

The following screenshot describes how the Graphics memory be increased and Vertical Synchronization can be disabled within the Parallels hardware settings.

Default optimization settings which should not be changed include “Performance, Faster virtual machine” and Power, Better performance”.

Users who do not have a powerful graphics card have reported flashing in the map display, changing the default display setting from DX11 to DX9 has helped resolved these issues but these users still experience slower rendering times than those with a discrete graphics card present.

VMWare Fusion

VMWare Fusion Pro also provides Mac users with virtualization technology to run Windows and ArcGIS as a virtual machine within OS X.  Users must purchase VMWare fusion to use this virtualization option.  Similar to Parallels, this is a suitable option for users whom have newer Macs with more powerful hardware resources in terms of CPU, Memory and an Nvidia graphics card like a GeForce GT 750M.  VMware Fusion tools is required to be installed within the VM for 3D acceleration.

By default, a VMWare Fusion VM is configured with only 1vCPU, 4GB of RAM, and 512 MB of graphics memory.  This configuration is not suitable for a graphically intensive, multi-threaded application like ArcGIS Pro.  The minimum hardware configuration for running ArcGIS Pro in VMWare Fusion is:

  • 4 virtual CPU,
  • 6 GB of RAM
  • 2GB of graphics memory*

*Preliminary testing has shown 2GB of graphic memory required for optimal performance, more than what it required for Parallels.  Esri is continuously working refine the efficiency of the frame buffer and this requirement may change in the future releases.

The following screenshot describes how the CPU and Memory can be configured within VMware Fusion VM settings. The following screenshot describes how the increase shared graphics memory within the VM display settings. Default display settings which should not be changed include, accelerate 3D graphics and always use high performance graphics.

In summary, ArcGIS for Desktop can optimally run on Macs, however proper setup and configuration is essential.   Newer Macs, with discrete GPU’s, have more powerful hardware resources, and can optimally support a graphically-intensive program like ArcGIS Pro.   A final configuration recommendation is within the Mac OS X setting, where high performance graphics does not perform graphics switching when running on battery power.  When this setting is enabled, ArcGIS Pro rendering times are more stable.

Overview

ArcGIS is a great way to discover and use maps. Maps come to life in ArcGIS. Tap on the map or use your current location and discover information about what you see. You can query the map, search and find interesting information, measure distances and areas of interest and share maps with others.

Find community hosted maps from ArcGIS Online – ESRI’s online GIS. Alternatively you can use the authoring tools on ArcGIS.com to create your own maps that can be used in ArcGIS for Mac.

If you are an existing ESRI customer this application is part of your ArcGIS for Mac system. You can share your corporate maps and extend the reach of your GIS to your iOS devices within your enterprise using ArcGIS for Mac Server.

What’s new in ArcGIS for Mac

Version 1.5:Data Collection and Editing:

ArcGIS Desktop or ArcGIS for Mac Pro will not work natively on an Apple Macintosh computer. To use it on a Mac, you must be running Windows. To do this you can either create a dual boot setup using Bootcamp ($0), or set up a virtual machine using Parallels (discount is available for SF State matriculated students only).

“Matriculated student” is defined as a student who is enrolled full-time or part-time in a degree granting program at San Francisco State University. College of Extended Learning GIS Certificate Program students are not considered to be matriculated students and are therefore ineligible for these discounts.

1. Setting up a dual boot system with Bootcamp

This is a free option, but will require you to either work in Windows or MacOS–you cannot toggle between the two without restarting the computer. Note that files stored in one partition will be available in the other.

  • We highly recommend you back up the contents of your computer first.
  • (note this unfortunately not available to non-matriculated–i.e. CEL GIS Certificate–students). Also note that matriculated students will have to log in with their SFSU credentials to get this discounted rate.
  • Launch the Bootcamp Assistant. Navigate to the copy of Windows 10 you downloaded.
  • When prompted, partitiion at least 25 GB of space for Windows–more if you plan to work with large datasets.
  • Let the Bootcamp Assistant run and select the new drive you just created to install Windows on. Make sure the size of the drive you pick matches the size that you specified in the previous step to avoid overwriting your MacOS drive.
  • Once you have Windows set up, install the ArcGIS software you need.
  • To select which drive to boot to when restarting the machine, click on the option key.

2. Setting up a virtual machine with Parallels

This option is not free, but a big advantage is that you can switch between operating systems and access files without having to reboot your computer.

  • We highly recommend you back up the contents of your computer first.
  • Download Parallels Desktop for Mac to SFSU matriculated students at this discounted (Choose More Options once you’re on the main On the Hub web page). Note that Parallels software is unfortunately not available to non-matriculated–i.e. CEL GIS Certificate–students. Also note that matriculated students will have to log in with their SFSU credentials to get this discounted rate. A different virtual machine option is to download and install VMWare. There is no SFSU student discount for this software, but VMWare can be purchased directly from the manufacturer
  • Download a copy of Windows 10, which is free to SFSU matriculated students. Note that Windows 10 software is unfortunately not available to non-matriculated–i.e. CEL GIS Certificate–students. Also note that matriculated students will have to log in with their SFSU credentials to get this discounted rate.
  • Install the Parallels software, open it and select “New” to create a new virtual machine. Locate the Windows 10 file you downloaded earlier.
  • Once you have Windows set up, install the ArcGIS software you need.
  • You should be able to access this virtual Windows 10 machine from your desktop–there’s no need to restart your computer.
