FAQs

What is ArcGIS Desktop Advanced 1 Year License?

Where can I access ArcGIS Desktop on Campus workstations?

ArcGIS Desktop is installed on the computers located in the York University Map Library and Steacie Library Computing Lab. Students/Faculty using ArcGIS Desktop on library computers can also access ESRI Virtual Campus courses.

ArcGIS Desktop Advanced - Single user licenses (multi-year license)

This product is available only to faculty, researchers, graduate students, and staff who are affiliated with a York University ESRI Consortium Partner. A single use license generally restricts use of a software product to one user/machine. A single use license must be dedicated for each computer that has use rights for the software, data, or documentation. A single use license is sometimes referred to as a "node-locked license," but single use is the preferred ESRI terminology.

ArcGIS Desktop Concurrent Use licenses

A concurrent use license allows users to gain access to the software from any computer on the network on which the software is installed. A license server manager administers a pool of licenses to be shared. The number of concurrent licenses determines the number users who can run the applications concurrently. If all licenses are being used, an additional user cannot run the application until one of the other users finishes using his/her license. When one user finishes using the license, another user can begin using it. A concurrent use license is not locked to a single computer and, as such, can float on a network. This is why you may still hear it referred to as a "floating license." From http://www.esri.com/library/whitepapers/pdfs/arcgis10-licensing.pdf. This license option is only available to researchers, faculty and staff associated with York University ESRI Consortium partner.
