Where can I download site-licensed software for my University owned computer
Last Updated 3 years ago

For your university owned equipment computer you can download software through our Linux server.

Using your LDAP account created for you on the Geography Department's Linux server -- called longitude, you can use an sFTP-enabled file transfer program, like FileZilla, WinSCP, etc. (instructions for getting and installing an sFTP client: http://it.geog.ucsb.edu/scp/faq.php?id=18 ) to download any site-licensed software.

The software can be found in the /sw directory. To get to that directory, simply type in /sw in the navigation bar of the server-side of the window (not of your local computer, which is on the left-hand side of, say, FileZilla’s interface), and press the Enter key on your keyboard.

Software title available:
Envi
Esri
Intergraph
Lastools
Matlab
Microsoft
SAS
SBDART-HIDES-EdGCM
SPSS
Xpress

Once installed, if the program requires a license key, write a note to support@geog.ucsb.edu to get the key.
