GIS - Geographic information system


A Geographic information system is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data.

The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographical information science or geospatial information studies to refer to the academic discipline or career of working with geographic information systems.

In the simplest terms, GIS is the merging of cartography, statistical analysis, and database technology.
