GIS at The University of Vermont

Geographic Information Systems at UVM generally means ArcGIS — the industry leading desktop GIS application from ESRI.  UVM has an unlimited site license for ArcGIS. Consequently, the emphasis here is on ArcGIS.  Of course, there are choices for GIS software, and there are many other aspects to GIS at the University of Vermont.  For more general information please visit Dr. Morrissey's Geospatial Technologies page.
