UCSF participates in the UC-wide Esri educational site license agreement. Through this license agreement a selection of Esri software products are available to UCSF students and employees with a valid and active employee ID. Esri products are intended for teaching, research, and restricted administrative use.


License Overview

Esri provides guidance on how their software and data can be used at a higher education institution. GIS software is appropriate for teaching, research, community service, and adminstrative use. Because it is sometimes unclear whether a particular use is permitted under the education licensing or may require a commercial license, Esri has developed a rubric for determining permitted use.
