Click on the tabs below for information about ArcGIS.
ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) used for creating and using maps, compiling geographic data, analysing mapped information, and discovering and sharing geographic information using contextual tools for mapping and spatial reasoning.
The Desktop Application includes:
ArcGIS Pro + Extensions
ArcMap + Extensions (ArcMap is no longer under direct development and is included for backwards compatibility.)
ArcGIS Online and Apps for the Field, for example Survey123 and Collector for ArcGIS are among some of the other applications available under the University's licence.
ArcGIS online acts as a platform to share and access content. Course Leaders can create groups to restrict materials directly to specific groups of students or invite external researchers to share content outside the university. If you require these permissions please contact IT support.
ArcGIS is installed on all IT Services classroom PCs and are available for all other University and personally owned staff and student PCs.
