Geographic Information System (GIS):

  • A GIS is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. By relating seemingly unrelated data, GIS can help individuals and organizations better understand spatial patterns and relationships.

GIS can use any information that includes location. The location can be expressed in many different ways, such as latitude and longitude, address, or ZIP code. GIS can include data about people, such as population, income, or education level. It can also include information about the sites of factories, farms, and schools, or storm drains, roads, and electric power lines etc.
