ArcGIS for Students

ArcGIS is a powerful GIS (Graphical Information System) desktop system for editing and managing geographic data. ArcGIS can be used for visualizing, managing, creating, and analyzing geographic data. Using ArcGIS, you can understand the geographic context of your data, allowing you to see relationships and identify patterns in new ways. ArcGIS includes additional advanced editing tools to ensure the quality of your data. ArcGIS supports single- and multi-user editing, allowing you to disconnect from the database and edit in the field.
