ArcGIS Maps for Office, part of the ArcGIS platform, is an add-in for Microsoft Office that brings mapping capabilities to Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint. With ArcGIS Maps for Office, you can create a geospatial view of your organization's data by creating an interactive map that includes data from Microsoft Excel and ArcGIS services—all without leaving the Microsoft Excel environment. From Microsoft Excel, you can share your Microsoft Excel data to ArcGIS, add web maps you've created to Microsoft PowerPoint, or copy maps as images that can be inserted anywhere that paste functionality is supported. ArcGIS Maps for Office brings mapping to Microsoft PowerPoint by allowing you to include dynamic maps from Microsoft Excel or maps from ArcGIS Online as slides in any Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.
After you install the ArcGIS Maps for Office add-in, the ArcGIS Maps tab is available in both Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint. Use this tab to create and manage maps.
