ArcGIS for Desktop
ArcGIS for Desktop is now available as ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS is only available for the Windows operating system. To run ArcGIS on a Mac, Windows must be installed first.
ArcGIS for Desktop: ArcMap is installed in all teaching and common-use Windows computer labs across campus. 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 for Desktop: ArcGIS Pro is also is installed in all teaching and common-use Windows computer labs at CSUMB.
CSUMB students, staff, and faculty can download ArcGIS Pro from profile section of their CSUMB Education and Research AGOL Organization account, or from the Esri ArcGIS Desktop Student Edition website while downloading ArcMap (this option requires an authorization code for the ArcMap Student Edition).
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not have an AGOL account.
Be sure to choose "Sign in with ENTERPRISE LOGIN":
Next, enter "csumb" in the URL for our AGOL organization:
And finally enter your username and password into Okta if you are not already logged in via Single Sign On.
Authorizing ArcGIS Pro: Concurrent Use License
You must be connected to the CSUMB network to authorize via Concurrent Use licensing.
ArcGIS Online (AGOL)
ArcGIS Online offers a complete, cloud-based geographic information system of the world. CSUMB students, staff, and faculty can access the CSUMB Education and Research AGOL Organization account via Okta Single Sign On.
Note: CSUMB AGOL users with accounts prior to November 21, 2017 can still access their existing accounts using their old user name and password, as well as creating a new account linked to their username. You will see two sign in options when you connect to AGOL:
The first option, "CSUMB EDUCATION AND RESEARCH" is for your SSO-linked <username>_CSUMB account
The second choice, "ARCGIS" is for an existing account, if you have one. You will need your old login credentials to access this account.
More detailed information about signing in to AGOL is available. If you encounter issues when creating or logging into your CSUMB AGOL account, please contact email@example.com.

While not expressly geospatial software, R is a statistical computing environment that can be used for geospatial applications, and is featured in many CSUMB courses. R is installed in all Science Teaching Labs in the Chapman Science Academic Center (SAC, Building 53) and the Science Instructional Lab Annex (Building 50).
R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS. To download R, please choose your preferred CRAN mirror.
