Introduction to Geographical Information System (GIS)
INTRODUCTION

Geographical Information System (GIS) is becoming an important tool for many applications that use geospatial data. It is widely used to view and analyze data from a geographic perspective. The technology is a piece of an organization’s overall information system framework. GIS links location to information (such as people to addresses, buildings to parcel, or streets within a network) as to provide a better understanding of how it all interrelates.

Most computer technology is designed to increase a decision-maker’s access to relevant data. GIS goes beyond mining data to provide the tools to interpret that data, allowing seeing relationships, patterns or trends intuitively that are not possible to see with traditional charts, graphs and spreadsheets.

More than that, a GIS lets user’s model scenarios to test various hypotheses and see outcome that meets the needs of all the stakeholders. For example, a retail manager looking to build a new store can analyze consumer demographics and the locations of competitors in relation to potential locations in spreadsheet view. GIS lets that manager visualize potential locations on a map along with drive analysis, environmental concerns such wetlands or protected species that might hamper construction or any number of siting criteria that would be too cumbersome to comprehend otherwise.
