Software Access

There are three (3) ways Binghamton University faculty, staff and students can gain access to ArcGIS Desktop Software.

1) If you have a network connected windows desktop on campus, we can set up an appointment and I will install the software.

2) If you have a windows laptop, I can email you instructions on how to download, install and authorize a one year educational license.

3) If you have a mac laptop, I can give you access to a virtual desktop environment that runs the software.

-Send me an email if you want more information on any of these options.
