What is GIS? Geographic Information Systems is a system of hardware and software used for storage, retrieval, mapping, and analysis of geographic data. The data can be used to create maps, charts, and 3D models of the earth's surface. Spatial data are referenced to a geographic coordinate system (eg:Latitude/Longitude, UTM, State Plane, etc.). Attribute data can be associated with geographic locations, displayed, and analyzed using various GIS-based tools. GIS applications can be used in a wide variety of disciplines from scientific investigations, planning, resource management or emergency response to commercial and media applications.
