AUCA received ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro licenses

October 19, 2022

With the support of the OSUN GeoHub project, American University of Central Asia (AUCA) received 50 licenses of ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro software free of charge.

ArcGIS is ESRI's most advanced professional desktop GIS application. ArcGIS software will allow AUCA students to explore and visualize data, create 2D and 3D maps, perform spatial analysis, and manage geographic data.

ArcGIS Desktop software is already installed on 25 computers in the AUCA lab. 

AUCA extended special thanks to Victor Lagutov, director of the GeoHub project and head of the Environmental Systems Laboratory at CEU, for obtaining the licenses.

GeoHub is an open platform project aimed at developing the capacity of OSUN (Open Society University Network) members to use the latest geospatial methods and technologies in research and teaching disciplines. The project is conducted in partnership between CEU, AUCA, and Bard College.

Tian Shan Policy Center (TSPC) implements this OSUN project at AUCA in collaboration with the Departments of Ecology and Geology. GeoHub project offers students and researchers geospatial online courses and retreats, training workshops, internships, and professional certification programs focused on practical, real-world problems and potential solutions in academic research.
