Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information. GIS allows the user to visualize data in a way that reveals trends and patterns in the form of maps, reports, and charts. Information obtained from GIS can be used to determining trends in public safety, transportation, utilities and environmental concerns.
