Nope - you'll be using free WebGIS services in this course. No large downloads or software purchases are required to participate in this class.
What sort of computer works best for this class?
Most people will be fine to take this class with a laptop or desktop computer that has a contemporary web browser. Some have been successful completing the lab exercises in this class using phones/tablets, but the mapping assignments are not designed to be completed on mobile platforms at this time.
