The creators and sponsors of the San Pedro River Basin Spatial Data Archive recognized that not all persons potentially interested in the data would have access to the Internet or GIS software. To allow these users to benefit from the data contained in the archive, Arc Explorer has been included on the CD. Arc Explorer is a free application created by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI).
