What is GIS?
GIS is a Geographic Information System. It integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
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 system is built with layers of data. Some layers contain raster data (such as aerial photography) while others contain points, lines, polygons or text. Most layers have an attribute table where the data for that layer is contained. This attribute table can contain things such as name, address, acreage, length or any other pertinent information.
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 technology is used by governments, educators, scientists, military, conservationists, businesses, utilities and many others.
