GeoSpatial Software Resources
GeoData Center maintains and supports site or lab licenses for various GeoSpatial software packages.
ESRI Site License
The GeoData Center maintains a full ESRI ArcGIS site license (PDF) for the UWF community. Software access is made available at no-cost for students, instructors, researchers and staff *. Our license includes the full ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced suite, ArcGIS for Server Enterprise, ESRI Developer Network products, CityEngine, ArcPad, and a limited ArcGIS Online subscription. ArcGIS products are available for use in the GeoData Center Lab facility and the John C Pace Library Skylab or by request from Center staff.
* Contributions towards license cost may be requested for certain revenue generating activities.
Other Software Titles
GeoData Center also maintains licenses for ERDAS IMAGINE (remote sensing and image processing), Clark Labs IDRISI Taiga (GeoSpatial modeling and analysis) and Trimble Pathfinder Office (GPS mapping and correction). Licenses for these titles are limited and are only available in the GIS Laboratory. Researchers requiring use of these packages away from our facilities are encouraged to contact us for assistance in acquiring licenses.
