What software is available?

The following software is available on every computer in the SEAL Lab:

  • Microsoft Office suite of programs (Word, Excel etc.)
  • Stata MP4 plus a large suite of the Stata user-written programs. We can provide any otherSSC repository user-written program on request.
  • R Studio and the 100 most used CRAN add-in programs. We can provide any other CRAN repository add-in program on request.
  • QGIS Open Source Geographic Information System
  • Anaconda GUI Spyder for Python
  • SAS is also a standard software offering but you must request installation of SAS.

Application software is updated every November except for SAS, which is updated in July.  Major new software releases are done when they are available.  We typically install the 64-bit version of all software.

If you need to convert a data set from one format to another, the SEAL Lab is able to do this conversion for you.

Other software packages can be installed upon request. We can provide information on availability and cost.
