ArcMap

ArcGIS for Desktop: ArcMap is installed in all Science Teaching Labs in the Chapman Science Academic Center (SAC, Building 53) and the Science Instructional Lab Annex (Building 50). The software is licensed for the full Advanced (formerly ArcInfo) level functionality, with all the extensions (Spatial, Geostatistical, 3D, Network, and Tracking Analysts).

CSUMB community members can obtain a 1-year license for the Student Edition of ArcMap for installation on their own personal computers.

ArcGIS Pro

ArcGIS for Desktop: ArcGIS Pro is installed in the Geospatial Teaching Labs, 53-S117 & -S119, in the SAC.

The licensing for ArcGIS Pro is administered via the user's ArcGIS Online (AGOL) and Esri accounts ("Named User" licensing), as well as Concurrent- and Single-Use. CSUMB community members can obtain a license for ArcGIS Pro via their CSUMB Education and Research AGOL Organization account (see below), or contact gis@csumb.edu for other options.

Authorizing ArcGIS Pro: Named User License

You will need an account with the CSUMB Education and Research AGOL Organization that is authorized for Pro. Contact your instructor or gis@csumb.edu if you do not have an AGOL account.

ArcGIS Pro Licensing interface set up for Named User License

Authorizing ArcGIS Pro: Concurrent Use License

You must be connected to the CSUMB network to authorize via Concurrent Use licensing.
