Frequently Asked Questions:

What you need:
– All students are required to purchase the book/software package: “GIS Tutorial 1, 10.3 Edition” by Kurland and Gorr. Be sure to purchase a NEW book, as it comes with a 6-month trial of the software you will need for the course. Alternatively, if you would like to purchase a personal copy of the software, ESRI offers a personal license for $100/year though the text will still be required.

What to bring to class:
– All students should plan to provide their own Laptop and ArcGIS software for the course.This software only working in the Windows Operating System, if you have a Mac, you can run a Windows virtual machine through your Mac or try and borrow a PC

If I don’t own a laptop, can I borrow one?
– There are 3 desktops on location (with ArcGIS installed) for students who cannot provide their own computer but this means you will only be able to work during the class hours.
