Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems Overview

What are Geographic Information Systems?

Geographic Information Systems (or GIS) provide the functions needed to gather and store Earth-based spatial or geographical data for analysis, building maps, or for map-based applications and studies. Companies deploy GIS applications to map data, identify problems, track trends, and improve predictive modeling.


GIS software has tools that combine spatial data, layers, and location data to create 3D scenes.

Capable GIS software will have tools for the input and manipulation of geographic data. It will integrate spatial data with other data resources; it might even use a database management system (DBMS) to manage spatial data. Finally, it will have tools for visualization and analysis.
