Hi Doug,

I may not be at work tomorrow due to jury duty so I want to give you a
rundown on the computer labs.  We have ArcGIS and your data installed in
155 SST and 630 SST.  Your data is located in
C:\MyDocuments\arcgis\dwhite.  You can just click on the dwhite.mxd file
in this folder to start ArcGIS and load the data.  The dwhite folder is
not writeable by the students.  If you are going to have them do their own
projects they should create their own folder within the
c:\MyDocuments\arcgis folder.  This will be writeable and will not be
deleted (by us anyway) until the end of the quarter.  The computers are a
little slow but ArcGIS seems to run just fine.

ArcGIS is also available in the irc labs located in rooms 107 SST and 120
SST.  I'm trying to get your data installed in there as well but it will
be located in a different place in one of their network folders.  I'll
give you more details as I get them.

Subject: Student version of ArcView 8.3 available for $100

George, Joe, Doug, Susan and Keith,

For your GIS students, ESRI now offers a student version of ArcGIS 8.3.
Students have to contact ESRI directly to pay for and obtain the software.

Here are ESRI's requirements for the students:
- taking 6 or more credits (or hours) currently
- attending a GIS or geography-related class
- FAX their current course schedule, their name and their phone number
to 909.307.3049, ATTN: Education Sales

Once that is done ESRI Sales will contact the student directly to handle
payment and software delivery.

For $100 students get to use ArcGIS (ArcView level) on their personal computer 
for one year.  (The software times out one year after the software is installed.)
Software includes ArcGIS 8.3, 3D Analyst, Spatial Analyst, and Geostatistical

Or, students can purchase a perpetual ArcGIS (ArcView level) license for $250.
Each extension (e.g., 3D Analyst, Spatial Analyst or Geostatistical Analyst) costs
an additional $100.  Though these are perpetual licenses (meaning the software
never times out) the license does not include any updates.  To get updates
the students would have to pay an additional $250 plus $100 for each extension.

Please note that on campus ArcGIS can be installed (currently for free) on
any University-owned computer running Windows NT, 2000 or XP.  However, 
students cannot load ESRI software acquired for the campus onto their 
personally-owned computers.  

If students do not want to purchase the software, ArcGIS is installed and 
available for them to use on all NACS Windows-based computer labs (some
of which are open 24 hours) as well as some of the Library labs.

Please let me know if you have questions about this.
