Geographic Information Systems (GIS) :: Availability and Support
Availability of GIS software ESRI's ArcGIS software is the primary GIS software in use at Grinnell. The software resides on the campus network. We have approximately 50 ArcView licenses and 3 ArcInfo licenses. If you would like to have GIS software on your office computer, please contact the ITS office.
The Burling Library IIF, ARH 124, the Goodnow Hall computer lab, and PCs in the Creative Computing Lab in the Forum have ArcGIS software installed. These systems can be used by students during the available hours of the labs and by courses as scheduled by the registrar. A large-format digitization tablet and two small-format digitization tablets are available at Burling Library.
