ArcGIS For Desktop
ArcGIS for Desktop is the product that most everyone thinks of when they hear the term "GIS". This is true across the world, not just at UW-Green Bay. ArcGIS for Desktop is activated on all lab machines on the campus. Additional installations (faculty offices, grad students, etc) are made via the CIT work order system. Just call the Help Desk - it's fast and painless.
Students in courses that use ArcGIS in class can obtain a copy of the software to use at home. The Student Edition includes the same program modules described above for campus PCs. Faculty wishing to obtain this benefit for their students should contact Esri directly.
ArcGIS Online is cloud-based geographic information system software. It is distributed via paid subscription and is quite expensive. As with many of Esri's high-end products, ArcGIS Online is included under the educational site license at no additional cost. Our free subscription enables 100 users to build and publish web maps and data more info.
