Esri Program Helps Nonprofits Get Started with Mapping and GIS

REDLANDS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 8, 2010 — Today, Esri president Jack Dangermond announced a new program that helps qualified nonprofit organizations acquire and get started with ArcGIS geographic information system (GIS) software. The program is intended to make it much easier and more affordable for these organizations to incorporate spatial analysis, mapping, and geographic data management into their local and global efforts.

Dangermond, who made the announcement at the Gov 2.0 Summit in Washington, D.C., said, "Countless nonprofit organizations with many different levels of hardworking staff and volunteers are trying to make our world a better place. With this flexible program, we hope to give these organizations the tools they need to better visualize and analyze spatial information so that they can accomplish their various missions."

The program allows qualified nonprofit organizations to request up to 75 seats of ArcGIS Desktop and 2 seats of ArcGIS Server software per organization. Alternatively, organizations can choose from four levels of a special nonprofit organization enterprise license agreement (ELA) designed to meet the needs of larger operations. Both ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Server software include all extensions.
