Additional Technology Information
Before reading on you might be interested in our technology resources. We maintain a broad spectrum of geospatial software and hardware.
The University of Denver maintains a site license with ESRI making most of their products available in our labs. ESRI software available, but not limited to:
ArcGIS 10.1 Student Edition
NOTE: ArcGIS 10.1 disks are not yet available. You may download the software from ESRI. Then request an authorization code from Amy or Will. See below.
As a benefit to participating in our GIS academic program, currently enrolled GIS students may request a copy of the Student Edition of ArcGIS software at the start of an academic quarter or when the one-year license expires. GIS certificate students currently registered in a GIS class can request a copy from GIS Program Coordinator Amy Feldman. Current Geography students can request a copy from Will Kiniston.
For more information about the Student Edition of ArcGIS, go to ESRI.
Students should go to http://www.esri.com/evalhelp where there are step by step instructions for downloading, installing and authorization the license. The most common mistake that students make is that they do not activate at http://www.esri.com/educationedition before they try to authorize or they select ArcEditor instead of ArcInfo. Select ArcInfo!
Image Processing software available:
GPS Software and Equipment
A DUnet public printer is set up in the GIS lab.
DUnet / Public Printing “CP4525” User Guide
This series of printer is a new addition to the Public Printing fleet and includes a variety of new features and functionality for this location. This printer is capable of printing black and white documents as well as color. This printer can also print double-sided (duplex) documents.
The cost of a given document is based on a per page use of the features described above:
Please note the following:
The cost of a given document can be viewed near the bottom of a Print Release Station after the document has been selected and before clicking “Print”. It is highly recommended that you review this cost prior to clicking “Print” as your Uniprint and/or Flex account will normally be billed as soon as the “Print” button is clicked or touched. Please note that documents that are not printed will automatically be removed from the queue after 2 hours and will not be billed for.
Windows users will print with the default settings of simplex and grayscale. More information on how to change per job settings and/or the default printer settings is available by clicking the “DUnet Printers” link at http://dunet.du.edu.
Mac users will print with the default settings of simplex and color. Due to the higher cost of these pages, it is highly recommended that Mac users change their default printer settings. These settings are typically accessible from the printing menu of an application and are known as Presets. More information on how to change per job settings and/or these Presets is available by clicking the “DUnet Printers” link at http://dunet.du.edu.
There is a HP DesignJet 5500 large-format plotter available in the GIS lab for printing large maps and posters. GIS lab computers are capable of sending plot files to this device.
The University can send voice or text messages to students, faculty and staff in the event of an urgent situation.
