GIS at UCD and on the Web: Introduction

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
