ArcGIS For WWU Faculty and Staff

ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online for WWU Faculty and Staff

Western Washington University has two ArcGIS Online organizations: WWU-Academic and WWU-Facility. Students, faculty and academic staff make use of the WWU-Academic organization. Campus facilities and administration staff make use of the WWU-Facility organization. The ONLY difference between the two organizations (from the user perspective) is the format for creating an account and the process for logging in. All WWU students, faculty and staff (in either organization) have access to ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online.

 

The WWU-Academic ArcGIS Online Organization

  • Is for Faculty, Research staff, Library staff, Academic IT staff, etc. (as well as Students)
  • Uses Single-Sign-On user accounts (i.e., makes use of the individual's WWU user name and password)

 

The WWU-Facility ArcGIS Online Organization

  • Is for Campus Facilities and other Campus Administration staff (i.e., Grounds, Parking, Transportation, Security, etc.)
  • Does NOT use Single-Sign-On (i.e., users maintain a unique username and password specifically for their WWU-Facility ArcGIS Online user account)
    • These accounts have to be set up manually by ATUS
    • Facility and/or administration staff should contact Nancy Larson to set up an account

 

ALL WWU USERS (of Either WWU ArcGIS Online Organization)

  • Have an ArcGIS Pro license (along with all of the various extensions and 'entitlements' that WWU has access to)
  • Have the same allotment of online 'Credits' for posting data or performing analysis using ArcGIS Online
  • Have access to the ESRI Academy for online trainings
  • Can download / install ArcGIS Pro on their personal computers (see ArcGIS Pro Off-Campus)
    • (Contact your campus IT staff to install ArcGIS Pro on a Campus computer)
  • Can make use of ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online tutorial and resource files maintained by the Huxley Spatial Institute
  • The ONLY difference between the two organizations (from the user perspective) is the format for creating an account and the process for logging in
