What is ArcGIS? 

ArcGIS is a powerful desktop mapping software application that enables users to create, manage, share, and analyze geospatial data and create their own custom designed maps.   Users can supply their own data or use the many datasets available from the library via this guide - see Popular Data Sources tab.
