Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

GIS is a computer technology that uses a geographic information system as an analytic framework for managing and integrating data; solving a problem; or understanding a past, present, or future situation.

Why Geography?

Geography is a serious discipline with multibillion dollar implications for businesses and governments. Choosing sites, targeting market segments, planning distribution networks, responding to emergencies, or redrawing country boundaries – all of these problems involve questions of geography.

What Can You Do With GIS?

  • Map where things are
  • Map quantities
  • Map densities
  • Find what’s happening inside a specific area
  • Find what’s nearby
  • Map changes in an area to anticipate future conditions, decide on a course of action
