June 4, 2010, Newsletter Issue #211: Special technical requirements for GIS students

Tip of the Week

When considering an online Master's degree in Geographic Information Systems, be sure to check with the programs you're considering for any special technical requirements. Online GIS students may need hardware or software that differs from the standard for most online courses. GIS software such as ArcView is available under a special student license for a minimal fee, but you will need to provide proof that you are enrolled and registered in an approved program in order to receive the special pricing. The computer that you use for your online studies will need to be powerful enough to run GIS software. The technical support department at your university will be able to provide you with a list of requirements specific to your program.
