UW-System Site License
UW-Madison is a part of the UW-System-wide site license which includes most ESRI products. This supercedes the SIAC negotiated contract, and the UW-Madison portion is currently administered through LICGF. In essence, in exchange for $27,000 per year in maintenance, the UW has unlimited right to copy ESRI products for use by UW-Madison Campus departments, institutes, and so forth. See the link at left for fees.
Master copies of the media are kept at LICGF, and can be checked out for installation, or download via FTP.. All others can get the Free ArcGIS Explorer software directly from ESRI.
A copy of the User's Agreement for the UW-Madison is here.
Technical support from ESRI is to be funneled through one of the GIS Specialists (Excel spreadsheet,click tab for esri_specialists), including Math Heinzel at LICGF. ude.csiw@lezniehw
