Site licenses for software products from ESRI are a major benefit included in the CSUGIS Specialty Center subscription. The software may be used by Faculty, Administrators, and students. Each CSU campus has a site license administrator.
The single-use licensed copies of ArcGIS for Desktop, version 10.1 or 10.2, run on a single machine not server. This software is available to Faculty, Staff and students. In order to activate the authorization number an ESRI Global Account is required. These registration numbers are used to generate a license file that is valid for one year
The technical representative or board member at each campus has a login and password for ESRI Customer Care Portal where they may generate an unlimited number of licenses and download software. As of March of 2016, support tickets may be opened through a separate My ESRI Portal for the CSU.
