How is the software distributed?

OhioGisNet  and Over 10,000 FTE Four-Year Schools
At the time they begin participation in the statewide site license, institutions which are larger than 10,000 FTE have the opportunity to select a set of initial deliverables, i.e. a copy of the software listed above, which will be sent to them directly. After that point, new releases and updated versions of the software will be sent to the institution as long as it continues to participate in the site license program.
Other  Schools
For all two-year schools and four-year institutions with less than 10,000 FTE, copies of the software needed must be obtained from the OARnet distribution web site, one of the OhioGISNet schools, or a copy of the software on CD-ROM or diskette media may be bought directly from Esri.

How is technical support provided?

OhioGisNet  and Over 10,000 FTE Four-Year Schools
Four year institutions with more than 10,000 FTE who participate will automatically receive two technical support contacts with Esri. These are two individuals who can contact Esri to obtain technical support services.
Other Schools
All two-year schools and four-year institutions with less than 10,000 FTE schools may designate one GIS specialist who can contact the GIS Specialists at OhioGISNet schools.
