The Districting for ArcGIS add-on is built on top of Esri's desktop technology and uses both the ArcCatalog and ArcMap applications within ArcGIS for Desktop (Basic, Standard, and Advanced). ArcCatalog is a convenient way to organize and preview districting plans. ArcMap contains an easy-to-use interface for viewing and editing districting plans.
System requirements are determined by the current product version and platform configuration you are using. Refer to the ArcGIS for Desktop specifications for details.
