Geography plays a role in nearly every decision made in the world today. A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software and data for capturing, managing, analyzing and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. It lets us question, interpret and understand data through revealed relationships, patterns and trends.
The Strategic Value of GIS
A GIS enables you to quickly see on a map what otherwise might not be immediately visible or understood in a multipage report or complex spreadsheet.
You can leverage this powerful capability to map quantities and densities, find out where things are located, map what’s inside specific areas, see what’s occurring within a given distance, anticipate future conditions, measure the impact of a specific action, and so much more.
