NEW! The University has acquired a site license for ArcGIS for all Faculty, staff and students. Under the site license all standard ESRI modules are included.

What is ArcGIS?

ArcGIS is a powerful desktop and server tool for mapping and analysis through the application of geographic knowledge. ArcGIS can perform spatial analysis while combining independent tabular data layers with maps, imagery and 3D geographic features. ArcGIS will be available on the CIRC platform for intensive research applications. ArcGIS also comes with web apps and device apps to share your work with others in across the University. These apps run on smartphones, tablets, web browsers, and desktops, and support a range of tasks and workflows.
