Geographic Information Systems
Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data. (GIS) also lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.
GIS can use any information that pertains to location. The location can be expressed in many different ways, such as latitude and longitude, address, or ZIP code. Many different types of information can be compared and contrasted using GIS. The system can include data about people, such as population, income, or education level. It can include information about the land, such as the location of streams, different kinds of vegetation, and different kinds of soil. It can include information about the sites of factories, farms, and schools, or storm drains, roads, and electric power lines and more.
