ArcGIS Desktop 10.2 is now available!

For those of you in K-12 schools using the desktop version of the Esri software, the latest version is now available through NHEdGIS. Although ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 will continue to work fine, 10.2 has a number of enhancements so you may wish to upgrade. This latest version does not require a complete uninstall of previous versions, and in fact, your current provisioning file will still work so all you need to do is download and install the software to upgrade.

NHEdGIS as an “organization” has absolutely no funding. Last year, working with the NH Geographic Alliance, three small grants were obtained to fund some of our professional development offerings.

Also, NHEdGIS wants to know if what we are doing is really helping to bring geospatial technologies to K-12 schools and students in NH, what else you would like to see us offer, and what we can do to improve. We can only find out that information if YOU let us know….and we felt the easiest way for you to provide it was a survey….. The connection?...
