At IU, what is the ERDAS Higher Education site license?
The ERDAS Higher Education (HEAK) Program provides the Indiana University community with geographic imaging software, including ERDAS IMAGINE, ER Mapper, and LPS product suites. These applications provide tools for geocorrection and reprojection, mosaicing, extracting 3D features, generating terrain models, image analysis, visualization, vector editing, batch processing, and map output.
ERDAS implemented the HEAK program to provide accredited educational institutions with low-cost access to industry-standard software. Because of the substantial pricing discounts, IU's current site license restricts the use of this software to non-profit research and educational purposes.
UITS manages the HEAK license for IU. Students, faculty, and staff at all IU campuses may purchase the software; see At IU, how do I purchase software from ERDAS?
ERDAS offers HEAK members a 50% discount for training (not including online training) received at their educational centers. Training materials and presentations are also available for purchase; for more, see the ERDAS Higher Education (HEAK) and Non-Profit (NPO) programs. Contact UITS GIS with questions about training.
