ArcGIS software available

Posted by lrath on October 30, 2007

Need to create a map showing the number of bars and restaurants operating in a certain zip code? Or do you need to analyze asthma rates by neighborhood? If you have the data, ArcGIS can help you do this.

ArcGIS is a commercial Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software package produced by a company called ESRI. It is used for geographic analysis, geographic database management, and map making.

The software is available in several locations at Baruch, including:

  • BCTC lab: the south side of the 6th floor (to the right of the turnstile at the back of the room)
  • Newman Library: on the Graduate Student Workstations on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors (graduate students only)
  • Vertical Campus (VC): in several labs on the 6th floor

Current members of the Baruch community who are interested in learning ArcGIS can enroll for free online courses as part of the ESRI Virtual Campus.
