What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and
data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of
geographically referenced information.
GIS 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.
A GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking at your
data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
