Install ArcGIS Desktop 10.8.1

ArcGIS is GIS software produced by the Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri) which allows you to collect, store, manage, visualise, export, analyse and map geographic data.

ArcGIS 10.8.1 is the desktop format of ArcGIS and is suitable for installation on PCs or laptops 

Can I use ArcGIS on a Mac? There is no Mac version of ArcGIS. A Windows emulator (virtual PC) could be installed on a Mac in order to run ArcGIS. To be legally compliant you would need to purchase a full Microsoft Windows licence. ArcGIS will work on a Windows emulator - and Esri have their own advice here: www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/3d-gis/3d-gis/arcgis-pro-in-mac-os-x.
