Geographic Information Systems - GIS

" A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer-based tool for mapping and analyzing things that exist and events that happen on earth. GIS technology integrates common database operations such as query and statistical analysis with the unique visualization and geographic analysis benefits offered by maps."

Using GIS, virtually any kind of data can be placed on a digital map, then visualized, compared, measured, and analyzed. Many governments and large organizations use GIS because of the astonishing diversity of information types that can be mapped and analyzed-these range from population demographics, to health statistics and epidemiology, utility and transportation networks, flood protection zones, animal migration routes, crime patterns, historical battlefields, sales and marketing trends, disaster destruction areas, and much more.
