As of January 2023, UCLA has a campus-wide license for Esri's ArcGIS software. New UCLA affiliates can access ESRI Resources using their UCLA Logon ID credentials. If you received an Individual ArcGIS Login BEFORE January 2023 that is linked to the UCLA GIS instance, that login still works, and you should continue to use it until accounts are consolidated. If you are a UCLA Extension student, contact your professor for access.
Our ESRI software license does not permit members of the public or past or future UCLA community members to use the software and associated data.
UCLA affiliates have access to the UCLA ArcGIS Online organization as long as they have an active UCLA Logon ID. Esri does not control when the university will de-activate UCLA IDs for graduating students or departing staff and faculty. Once your UCLA account becomes inactive, you will:
We do not delete items from the UCLA ArcGIS Online organization; after your account is de-activated, your content (data, web maps and web apps) will remain indefinitely online. The visibility of your content will depend on the share settings that you set -- for example, if you set your content to be shared to the organization, other organization members will be able to access and create copies of your content. If your content is openly shared, it will be publicly visible, and anyone with an ArcGIS Online account will be able to make copies of it. Once your UCLA ID is inactive, you will NOT be able to modify the share settings, edit, delete or transfer ownership of your content, so plan accordingly.
If you are working on ongoing projects or collaborations with other UCLA students, faculty, and/or staff, one option is to 'hand off' and transfer ownership of your content to their account. This allows another UCLA affiliate to own and maintain the content.
To do this, identify the person who will be receiving your content. Make sure they:
Contact Software Central (SoftwareCentral@ucla.edu) to request a transfer process.
