GIS support

Digitizers

To support work with and creation of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), the FES computer labs have two digitizers. The digitizers work with special GIS software, called Arc-GIS, which converts maps to digital format.

To use the digitizers, login to the computer attached to the digitizer and launch the ArcMAP module (within ArcGIS). Help can be obtained via the online help feature (under the Help menu).

Tutorials

Tutorials on the use of Arc-GIS are available for FES students conducting GIS research. Sign up for the tutorials by filling out the course request form.
