ArcGIS and other ESRI products are the premier suite of Geographical Information System (GIS) tools used at NYU (see ArcGIS free licenses are now available for distribution at NYU. ArcView, the most popular desktop mapping product will still be available at every ITS student computer lab or classroom, but in addition, NYU faculty and researchers may now obtain a free license for ArcGIS.

Another feature of the new license is for faculty wanting to make this software available to their classes. Along with a copy of ArcView for their use, faculty may obtain a one-year timed version to be distributed free to their entire class. This will allow students full functionality of ArcGIS and to take ESRI Virtual Campus classes at home (see .

Faculty may request that an entire class be enrolled in a monitored web introduction to ArcView mapmaking or in many other self-paced courses.

Many other ESRI tools such as Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst are included in the DVD. For more information and to obtain the software, please attend a GIS Tuesday, 1:00 pm Clinic at North Dorm Stats/Mapping Lab, 75 3rd Ave. down 2 flights or email
