Hardware and Software Configurations at CSIG 2005

Desktop machines will be provided at the CSIG, for the hands-on training (2 participants per machine). These machines will have the following configuration:

Dell PC (Pentium 3 or above with 512 MB RAM)
Windows XP professional
Here is the list of software the machine will have:

  • ArcGIS Desktop 9.0, ArcIMS 9.0
  • IIS 6.0
  • Tomcat 4.1.27
  • Apache Axis 1.1
  • XMLSpy
  • Microsoft Office
  • Database Client (DB2 Client etc.)
  • Text Editors others etc.
We strongly recommend that participants use one of our desktop machines, as they will be fully configured as needed and it will be easier to trace any problems that may arise during the Institute. In the event you wish to bring and use a personal laptop, the above listed software must be installed on your machine beforehand.

Wireless access will be available to CSIG participants while in the San Diego Supercomputer Center building (where the CSIG is being held).
