ArcGIS for Desktop

ArcGIS for Desktop is available in three license levels—Basic, Standard, and Advanced (formerly ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo, respectively), each one with more GIS functionality.

  • The Basic Software, formerly ArcView is the basic software for visualizing, managing and analyzing geographic data.

  • The Standard Software, formerly ArcEditor is the standard and includes all the capabilities of ArcView and includes additional functionalities in addition to the advanced operation and management of geographic data. Examples are the simultaneous processing of data by different users, advanced spatial data models and raster-vector conversion.

  • The Advanced Software, formerly ArcInfo is the most advanced product. Apart from the capabilities of ArcView and ArcEditor, it offers advanced functionality for analysis, modeling and mapping.

ArcGIS Desktop also has some specific extensions. There are extensions for 3D analysis, advanced spatial analysis, geostatistical analysis, network analysis…

Hardware Requirements

 

Advanced, Basic, Standard

CPU Speed 2.2 GHz minimum ; Hyper-threading (HHT) or Multi-core recommended
Platform x86 or x64 with SSE2 extensions
Memory/RAM 2 GB minimum
Display properties 24-bit color depth
Screen resolution 1024 x 768 recommended minimum at normal size (96 dpi)
Swap space Determined by the operating system; 500 MB minimum.
Disk space 2.4 GBIn addition, up to 50 MB of disk space may be needed in the Windows System directory (typically, C:\Windows\System32). You can view the disk space requirement for each of the 10.1 components in the Setup program.If using ArcGlobe, additional disk space may be required. ArcGlobe will create cache files when used.
Video/Graphics adaptor 64 MB RAM minimum, 256 MB RAM or higher recommended. NVIDIA, ATI, and Intel chipsets supported.24-bit capable graphics acceleratorOpenGL version 2.0 runtime minimum is required, and Shader Model 3.0 or higher is recommended.Be sure to use the latest available driver.
Networking Hardware Simple TCP/IP, Network Card, or Microsoft Loopback Adapter is required for the license manager.

 

Software Requirements

  • .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 must be installed prior to installing ArcGIS for Desktop.
  • Internet Explorer requirement:

Microsoft Internet Explorer (minimum IE 9) must be installed prior to installing ArcGIS for Desktop. Internet Explorer 9, 10 and 11 are supported.

  • Python requirement for Geoprocessing:

ArcGIS for Desktop geoprocessing tools require that Python 2.7.x and Numerical Python 1.7.x are installed. If the ArcGIS for Desktop setup does not find either Python 2.7.x or Numerical Python (NumPy) 1.7.xinstalled on the target computer, Python 2.7.8 and Numerical Python 1.7.1 will be installed during a complete installation of ArcGIS 10.3. You can choose a Custom installation to unselect the Python feature and avoid installing it. Additionally, if the Python setup is executed during the ArcGIS for Desktop installation, you will be provided with the opportunity to choose its installation location. The Python installation location should not include spaces.

Printer support

ArcGIS supports printing to any Microsoft certified Windows printer using the native driver in ArcGIS. Note that some printer drivers do not support complex maps, and the ArcPress printer driver or additional hardware may be needed for these complex maps.

Note:

Esri recommends the following configuration when printing large maps with the ArcPress printer drivers:

  • If large complex maps do not print, reboot the computer to ensure the pagefile system is cleared. If the pagefile system is not a dedicated drive or partition, make sure the drive does not need to be defragmented.
  • Disk Space: at least 10 GB of free space is required on the drive where %TEMP% is located, as potentially large temporary files will be written there while ArcPress is processing a map for printing.

Hardware requirements for the license manager are identical to ArcGIS for Desktop hardware requirements.
