ArcGIS is a powerful suite of spatial tools that scales to private enterprises, small cities, and likewise, universities. Structuring enterprise tools in a highly federated environment, such as a university, presents unique challenges, but when done correctly enables researchers to utilize an adaptable research toolkit and collaborate effectively without the overhead of administrative resource constraints. In this session, GIS and IT Professionals from multiple campuses, as well as from the GIS software company, Esri Education Team, will present campus case studies and tools to manage ArcGIS licensing. We will explore approaches to building enterprise geoservices to leverage GIS as a flexible tool to enable cross disciplinary research, cooperative outreach, academics, and operations. This is a topic that starts at “well we have a site-license, now what?” and hopefully lands at “with so many resources to use, where do I start first?”.
This session is intended for people involved with the administration and support of Esri ArcGIS Online. Familiarity with enterprise system administration and programming is useful, but not required.
