GIS

What is GIS?

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a set of tools for the collection and maintenance of databases and their spatial position. These tools are capable of creating maps and figures to display a multitude of data and the geographic position of that data within a particular area. Point, line, and polygon features are represented with associated attributes as layers within GIS. These layers can then be visually manipulated to draw illustrative and statistical conclusions. GIS can create maps for landowners, geographically represent sales data, illustrate and manage parcel boundaries, and calculate statistics as it relates to the geographic scope of a project. But the true scope of GIS is only limited by the needs and purposes of the user or requestor.
