What is a Geographic Information System (GIS)?

Simply put, a GIS combines layers of information about a place to give you a better understanding of that place. What layers of information you combine depends on your purpose. It is not is just a map. It is a database management system which stores and links geographically referenced data with graphic map features to allow a wide range of information processing and display operations, as well as map production, analysis and modeling.

What is GIS used for?

Local governments, such as cities, schools and counties, typically involve a variety of departments including assessors, auditors, engineering, emergency management, recorders, treasurers, and zoning. These agencies are relying more on GIS technology to plan new land developments, determine tax valuations, maintain real estate land records, route emergency vehicles, manage transportation systems, develop curriculum and study environmental issues.
