Center for Geographic Information Science Research (CGISR)


The CGISR recommends ArcGIS Pro 3.1 and ArcGIS ArcMap 10.8.2 be used. Any current CPP account holder may download and install either app onto their computers for education and research purposes. The software is also available virtually and on some IT&IP managed computers across campus.


Virtual access to ArcMap and Pro can be found in the Virtual Software Lab (under the 'Graphics Lab' option). On campus, you can find both apps in the 24-hour lab, library computers on floors 4 & 5, and the CGISR (5-215).
