What is GIS?
GIS stands for Geographic Information System. GIS is an electronic system that captures, stores, analyzes and manages information that is linked to location. At its most basic level, it is computerized mapping, though robust systems encorporate a variety of source information including real-time GPS information, statistical data and 3D landscapes.
