GIS Support


Information on ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Desktop 1-Year License, and ESRI Training for GIS courses, teaching and research is now available at the ArcGIS and ESRI Products at York University website.


To support work with and creation of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), the FES computer labs have one digitizer. The digitizer works with special GIS software, called ArcGIS, 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).
