What is GIS?
GIS is an information system that is designed to work with spatially or geographically referenced data. It is an information system composed of people, machinery and data that takes the user from:
- planning and observation
- to the collection of data for that observation
- to data storage and analysis
- to the use of derived information for decision making
GIS gives the user a clear, unambiguous visual presentation of information in the form of a map or display.
"A system of hardware, software, data, people,
organizations and institutional arrangements for collecting, storing, analyzing,
and disseminating information about areas of the earth." (Dueker & Kjerne, 1989)
