What is GIS
2A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware,
software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms
of geographically referenced information.
3GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret,
and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends
in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.
4GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems
by looking at your data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
