About ArcGIS Pro
From wikipedia: ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) for working with maps and geographic information. It is used for creating and using maps, compiling geographic data, analyzing mapped information, sharing and discovering geographic information, using maps and geographic information in a range of applications, and managing geographic information in a database.
As of 8/30/2022 ArcGIS for desktop is going away and will not be usable. You will need ArcGIS Pro. OIT has instructions on how to download and install the software linked below.
ArcGIS Pro is available for Engineering faculty, staff, and students. Faculty and staff should contact support to arrange installation on UA devices.
