    ArcGIS for home use program

    http://www.esri.com/arcgis-for-home/index.html

    Has anyone used this program at home? I do GIS all day at work,but sometimes I need to take work home with me over the weekend (or is that even allowed with this software)?

    Thanks-

    ESRI frowns on that, and would prefer you leave work at the office to enjoy the outdoors or a movie on the weekend. ;o)

    I'd personally just call and see if you can find someone at the number who can determine whether it would be compatible with work version.

    Keep us updated on what you find out. Do they really provide the full version of extensions like Network Analyst?

    So I'm guessing this would be equivalent to an ArcInfo license?

    Iíve looked into it, but more for continuing education reasons, not for taking my work home with me. It looks like a good program, but it has one huge caveat: is itís only an ArcView level license; youíre stuck at the lowest level. You could still do a lot of work, but thereís a lot you canít do. If youíre looking to work from home, and youíre at ArcGis 10, you might want to look into license borrowing

    See above. Youíd have access to the extensions, but some of the tools will be locked down because you donít have a fancy enough license. That may or may not be a deal breaker, depending on what you need to do.

    The home version appears to be a play around and learn version and should not be used for commercial purposes. Taking work home should look at the borrow license option available in Arc10
