Support
Due to the learning curve of GIS applications, the primary support and training efforts of ITS are limited to ESRI products. Limited support may be available for other GIS applications, such as GRASS or MapInfo, but our campus license does not cover purchase of those applications. Online training is freely available to students as well as faculty & staff.
