Thanks to a generous donation from Charles J. Lehman, Parish Memorial Library opened a new ArcGIS Studio primarily for economics students. The studio is a private room with a top-notch computer to run ArcGIS software. Mr. Lehman’s gift also includes ArcGIS licensing fees for the entire campus for two years.
ArcGIS is powerful software that maps geographic information system (GIS) data, allowing students to explore data and share location-based insights. Economics students aren’t the only ones who benefit from this gift – it is used for mapping and analytics for industries ranging from marketing to manufacturing, from environmental management to urban and regional planning.
