The ArcGIS (ESRI) contract has been renewed for another three year period. SIAST and the University are partners in this agreement, as both institutions use the software.
The licenses for the ArcGIS software are issued on an annual basis.
A change from the old contract is that we cannot issue licenses to students as we have done in the past. Instead, students can borrow licenses from a campus server. The process for borrowing licenses is on The Spatial Initiative website. (ICT is a partner in The Spatial Initiative.)
This is a good time for a reminder that GIS Library Services provides access to spatial data for those requiring it.
