Getting Access to ArcGIS Online

ArcGIS Online is part of the ESRI Geospatial platform available to active SF State students, faculty, staff, and affiliates for university-related research and teaching purposes. Please remember that when you use ArcGIS Online or install ArcGIS Desktop software on your computer, you are agreeing to use the software for your own teaching and learning purposes and not for commercial for-profit activity. The terms our university's license agreement can be found in this document.
