ArcGIS Online Pricing

ArcGIS Online subscriptions match the way your team works. User types, the building blocks of ArcGIS Online subscriptions, allow you to match team members with the capabilities and apps they need to complete their work.

Start with a Creator user type – Required

The Creator is a foundational user type. Every subscription requires at least one foundational user type to activate the subscription and administer members and content. If you want to administer and use ArcGIS Pro, you can purchase the GIS Professional—the other foundational user type—instead.

Dependent user types

Once you select a Creator or GIS Professional user type to administer your subscription, you can include a variety of dependent user types.

GIS Professional user type

In addition to ArcGIS Online, the GIS Professional user type includes ArcGIS Pro, the professional desktop GIS application.

Additional credits

Credits are the currency used in ArcGIS Online to purchase premium services including feature storage, analysis tools, and premium data. Credits are included with every ArcGIS Online subscription. Additional credits can be purchased and added to your subscription at any time.
