ArcGIS Licenses for 2013 - 2014

If you’re either 1) getting warnings about your ArcGIS license expiring or 2) are running ArcGIS Server, ArcSDE or an ArcGIS License Manager then keep reading. All others can safely ignore.

Since it’s shorter let’s start with 2) If you use ArcGIS Server, ArcSDE or an ArcGIS License Manager and have not already received an email from me with instructions on how to update your licenses then contact me: Luke Rogers (lwrogers@uw.edu) and I’ll get you set up.

ArcGIS 10.2

I have been getting lots of questions about when ArcGIS 10.2 will be released and how to get it. So far the only news from ESRI is the list of fixes for 10.2 and some what's new stuff from the online help system. As soo as ESRI publishes the software on our customer site I will mirror it at ftp://software.gis.washington.edu/esri/ and send an announcement to UW-GIS-L@uw.edu.

Site licensed ESRI software

The current list of site licensed software is available at http://www.esri.com/~/media/Files/Pdfs/industries/university/academic_programs/pdf/site-license-overview.pdf

 

Site licensed software can be installed on UW-owned equipment only.

 

If you are a student, you can obtain a 1-year timeout version of ArcGIS from your GIS instructor. No other ESRI software is available for installation on student-owned computers under the site license (though you can purchase student versions from ESRI).
