Obtain Geospatial Software

The Branch of Geospatial Support provides geospatial software to authorized organizations through the Enterprise License Agreement program.

The Branch of Geospatial Support (BOGS) offers geospatial software and support to authorized users through the Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) program

The ELA is an agreement between BOGS and the ArcGIS software manufacturer and distributor. 

This agreement enables BOGS to deploy ArcGIS software to federally recognized Tribes and BIA employees.
