ArcGIS comprises a suite of software including:
ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro are available for installation from the S Drive, along with authorization instructions. Look for the ArcGIS folder in the Public directory. Both programs require a Windows operating system. It is advisable to first check system requirements to verify that your computer can run these programs.
If you have any difficulty installing or authorizing the software, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Apporto is a virtual desktop environment that allows users to run software through the cloud rather than installing it on their computer. Library & IT has installed both ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro in our Apporto instance. Running ArcGIS desktop software via Apporto is the preferred solution for those with Macs, Chromebooks, or Linux computers. It can also be used by Windows users who do not wish to install the software directly on their machine.
The Ursinus ArcGIS Portal is similar to ArcGIS online, but hosted locally. To access from off campus, be sure to connect using VPN.
Insights for ArcGIS is available through the Portal.
