MapViewer is also available to faculty and staff (but not students) for installation on personally owned or leased machines, laptops and desktops, whether at home or on-campus. Separate licensing for other uses, including student home use and systems not used primarily in support of Mines’ academic mission, like a system used for a consulting business (even if on campus), must be purchased directly from Golden Software. Members of the Mines community may get a discount; please contact Golden Software for further information.
Licensing Mechanism: Serial Number.
Method for Obtaining: If you need MapViewer installed on a School of Mines-owned machine, submit a request to the Mines Help Center.
Cost to Qualified Mines End-Users: ITS does not currently charge for use of this license in supported labs and classrooms.
In case of difficulties running the software in a Mines ITS managed lab: Contact ITS via the Mines Help Center. We want the program to be properly installed, licensed and functioning. If you have questions about the use of the program, please contact your instructor, TA or lab manager.
