What is GIS? |
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an organized collection of personnel, geographic data, computer hardware, and software designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, distribute, and display all forms of geographically referenced information.
A GIS can also be described by the complexity and types of questions that the system can answer. They are: location, conditions, trends, patterns, and modeling. Location has to do what the question of what is at a specific location. Conditions are the result of a query to find locations that meet specific criteria. Trends are the differences in a location over time. Patterns show the relationship of conditions to each other. Modeling is a way of answering "what if" questions using complex and varied data.
