ArcGIS is a powerful desktop mapping program that enables users to analyze geospatial data and create their own custom designed maps. A popular use of ArcGIS has been to map the wide variety of demographic information available from the decennial census. Users can also supply their own data or make use of the many datasets available from the GIS and Data Services Department. See ArcGIS Data.
Previously ArcGIS software was only available for use in the Government Publications/Maps/Law Library. With the site license program, we are now authorized to offer Johns Hopkins faculty, students and staff the opportunity to load a copy of the ArcGIS software on to any university-owned computer for their use in teaching, research or course work.
