Dictionary renderer toolkit

Extend ArcGIS Pro, the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, and the ArcGIS Runtime SDKs by creating custom dictionary renderers. Dictionary renderers allow complex symbology specifications, such as those using in military symbology, to be configured and drawn in maps. This toolkit provides resources to support modifying and creating symbol dictionaries for use with the dictionary renderer to suit your symbolization requirements.


Dictionaries generated using this toolkit can be used in ArcGIS Pro 2.5 or higher and ArcGIS Runtime SDKs 100.7 or higher and published as web styles for use with the ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.13 or higher. Note: The ArcGIS API for JavaScript only supports dictionary symbology for point feature layers at this time.

A previous version of this toolkit allowed for creation of dictionary styles that worked with ArcGIS Pro 2.4 and ArcGIS Runtime SDKs 100.6. It is archived as a branch of this repository and it's recommended that dictionaries be upgraded to version 3.0.0, which this toolkit documents from that previous 2.0.0 version. See Upgrading dictionary styles from a previous version for steps to upgrade.

See the ArcGIS Pro system requirements for requirements to run ArcGIS Pro.

In order to build Add-Ins provided in this repository, see the ArcGIS Pro 2.5 SDK for .NET requirements.
