ArcGIS

ArcGis software is available to Temple users in the Geographic Information Systems Lab, Department of Geography and Urban Studies
Gladfelter Hall 336. "This lab features 19, dual 3.02 GHz, multi-threading, Pentium Xeon workstations which are supported by a wide-range of associated peripheral devices for data input and extraction. Each workstation supports a full compliment of ESRI  and IDRISI GIS software applications together with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Macromedia MX Studio products for web-authoring and development. In addition to hardware and software, students, instructors and researchers have access to many datasets shared with the Social Science Data Library and the Temple-based Philadelphia Indicators Project. More data resides on the facility's dual 3.02 GHz Dell server."

ArcGIS software is also available in the Graphics Lab on the 2nd floor of the TECH Center, and on two computer terminals in the area behind the Main Reference Desk on the first floor of Paley Library.

How to obtain ArcGIS

If you are a student and would like to have a copy of ArcGIS on your laptop or computer, you can request a copy through your instructor; as another benefit of Temple's ESRI GIS software site license, instructors may request a 1 year ArcView license for their students free of charge. ESRI will only honor requests submitted by instructors or faculty of the university; they will not honor requests submitted by students. If you have questions about this, contact Marc Getty.
