GIS at UCD and on the Web: Introduction
Install ArcGIS Desktop 10.7
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 10.7 is the desktop format of ArcGIS and is suitable for installation on PCs or laptops (see note on Macs below) and the minimum required computer specifications for installing ArcGIS 10.7 are as follows:
2 GB RAM minimum or higher
Display Properties 24 bit color depth
Screen Resolution 1024 x 768 recommended or higher at Normal size (96dpi)
Swap Space Determined by the operating system, 500 MB minimum.
Disk Space 2.8 GB
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.
