Service Termination of the HKUGIS
Server in September 2004
For nearly a decade, the HKUGIS server had been used to host a number
of geographic information system (GIS) software packages and applications.
Due to the aged condition and insufficient power for running newer versions
of the GIS software packages installed - ArcInfo, ArcView and Imagine,
these software and the related user applications and data were migrated
to the HKUSUA system in late 2003. Since then, the HKUGIS server
was maintained to serve as a license manager of the mentioned GIS packages,
and continued to run the "Virtual Campus Map" program. As we have
successfully moved the license managers of the GIS software to HKUSUA recently,
we would like to announce that the HKUGIS system will be shut down and
removed from operations on 7 September 2004. The "Virtual Campus
Map" program which could not be ported to another server will also be stopped.
Users can continue their work with the GIS software on the HKUSUA system.
