ArcGIS 10.1

19 Jul

While ArcGIS 10.2 will be released shortly we have gone with ArcGIS 10.1 for the fall ’13 semester for a few reasons.

    DoIT needed to get software on computers for the fall
    The workbook 1 for ArcGIS from Esri that I generally point students to just released the 10.1 edition
    For the first time in a LONG time, map documents are compatible across versions. If you install 10.2 on your faculty computer and save an mxd, you will be able to open that mxd in the labs on 10.1

All of that said, if you have heard about a feature in ArcGIS 10.2 that you want access to for your teaching/research/administrative activities let me know and we should be able to get your machine updated. Do keep in mind that our license does limit some uses, but it is very liberal.

Finally, if you would like access to our ArcGIS Online for Organizations credits, email your ArcGIS Online login (username, not the password) and I will add your account.

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
