A guide to help you discover geospatial data and GIS resources and services available for your research

Access GIS Software During the Covid-19 Outbreak

If you're unable to come to campus, you can access ArcGIS virtually.  If you want to use ArcGIS and ArcGIS Pro which is the desktop version, please use them via VCL (See the updated guide on this).  Otherwise, use ArcGIS Online through Mason institutional Account (use your Net ID)

If you have any questions related to the access, please contact Wendy Mann, Director, Digital Scholarship Center or datahelp@gmu.edu.
