Autodesk Software Licensing Changes

Autodesk has recently announced some important changes to licensing of their products for educational institutions. Licenses for educational/academic purposes will be FREE, but non-academic uses such as facilities maintenance, operations, utilities, etc. will no longer be allowed under the academic license. Instead, licenses for non-academic/facility purposes must be purchased at the commercial rate. More detailed information can be found here.

Google Earth Pro (50 licenses) has been renewed for a year (until end of July 2015). We require users who take these licenses to report to CGA on how they use Google Earth Pro for their research or teaching, which will be used to justify our renewal application.
