What is GIS?
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an automated mapping
system that uses computers to help map and analyze data that exist on
according to their geographic location. With a GIS, you can
capture spatial information and store it, integrate it, manipulate it,
analyze it and
display it. This spatial information is able to help the user
make decisions and help resolve issues before "real time" events begins.
