ESRI Software at MSU

Michigan State University has a site license to ESRI software, including some extensions.  Most PC computers in labs on campus are loaded with ArcGIS Pro.  Macintosh computers do not have ESRI software.

MSU affiliates with a MSU Netid Login can access ArcGIS Online, StoryMaps, Business Analyst Online and Survey 123 with a MSU Net ID Login. Instructions for login can be found here. They can also download ArcGIS Pro for PC desktop use using their ArcOnline account. Instructions for ArcGIS Pro download can be found here.
