Geographic Information Systems

Geography

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an innovative technology using digital information about earth surface features and location patterns to produce useful maps and analytical solutions to complex problems in physical, environmental, social and economic sciences. Applications of GIS have expanded continuously during the past decade, and GIS software has become very powerful, enabling complex problem solving in a wide variety of public and private sector settings worldwide.
