GIS is a system of computer software, hardware, and procedures that provides the ability to relate different types of data in a spatial context and to reach conclusions about this relationship. The primary focus of any GIS is to associate information in the form of a database with geographic locations or features such as points, lines, or areas on a map. GIS is particularly useful for managing large amounts of data associated with complex site investigations and large-scale natural resources studies.
GIS allows for coherent, cost-effective, and efficient data management querying, analysis, and presentation.
