A geographic information system (GIS) software suite integrates people, hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
A 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.
GIS and geospatial technologies are changing the way humans interact with their world.
