Caltech students or faculty engaged in GIS/RS-related learning, teaching and research can apply for a GIS Lab user account.
We offer the following types of user accounts:
Lab Membership Types
Remote User membership is ideal for those who will only be using the basic functions of ArcMap and would like to run it from their personal machine.
Light User membership is ideal for those who have their own equipment, but sometimes need to come into the lab for other reasons. This option is also good for the professors that want to include GIS in a project for their class, but do not necessarily want to make it the main focus.
Regular User membership is ideal for those who are working on a short or long term project and for those who already own another computer system that is not supported with the GIS software (i.e. Macintosh). There are a few professors that use the GIS Lab for the weekly labs. The time is reserved and the students generally spend 3-8 hours per week in the GIS Lab.
