Geographic Information Systems (GIS) - Powerful computerized systems for compiling, analyzing and recombining spatial data; related to automated map making.
Computerized data management systems designed to capture, store, retrieve, analyze and report on geographic and demographic data.
GIS consists of a series of tools used for spatial location of land information.
Software that links geographic information (where things are) with descriptive information (what things are). Unlike a paper map where “what you see is what you get,” GIS is a digital map and can present many “layers” of different information. See also, How We Make Determinations.
Computer-based systems capable of integrating different types of geological and demographic information. By creating maps, one may depict an area's natural and human-made resources, including soil types, population densities, land uses, transportation corridors, waterways, street patterns, mass-transit patterns, sewer lines, water sources, and utility lines.
A computer system capable of storing, manipulating, analyzing, and displaying geographic information.
(GIS) — Computer programs linking features commonly seen on maps (such as roads, town boundaries, water bodies) with related information not usually presented on maps, such as type of road surface, population, type of agriculture, type of vegetation, or water quality information. A GIS is a unique information system in which individual observations can be spatially referenced to each other.
Computer programs, facilitated through computer hardware, that integrate spatial data with other forms of information. Geography Study of the earthâ€(tm)s surface, typically facilitated through the use of maps.
Computer system designed to allow users to collect, manage, and analyze large volumes of spatially referenced and associated attribute data. GIS's are used for solving complex research, planning, and management problems.
computer-based systems that are designed to accept, organize, analyze, and display diverse types of spatial information.
a combination of the geospatial data systems and software designed to support transportation routing and logistics, generally for a municipality or regional area.
An organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze and display all forms of geographically referenced information. It incorporates the essential elements of computer cartography and relational databases into one system.
Combine digitized mapping with key locational data to graphically depict such trading-area characteristics as the demographics of the population, data on customer purchases, and listings of current, proposed, and competitor locations.

In the strictest sense, a GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations. Practitioners also regard the total GIS as including operating personnel and the data that go into the system.
(GIS) - Layers of information about a place that gives a better understanding of that place. The layers of information depend on the specific purpose and can be determined by the user. Requires specific software and data sources to be fully functional. See www.gis.com
A computer system that can spatially manage, analyze and present geographic data. Road maps show simple kinds of data like town names, highway routes and rivers. These data are tied to a particular location or "geo-referenced." GIS uses computers to greatly extend the data tied to locations and allows users to create customized maps and analyze patterns and relationships. Among the geo-referenced data sources are TIGER/Line files from the U.S. Census which are used to map all roads, transit lines and other transportation facilities.
A computerized system for combining, displaying, and analyzing geographic data. GIS produces maps for environmental planning and management by integrating physical and biological information (soils, vegetation, hydrology, living resources, and so forth) and cultural information (population, political boundaries, roads, bank and shoreline development, and so forth) (USEPA Region 5).
A computer software application that relates physical features on the earth to a database to be used for mapping and analysis.
An information system that is designed for storing, integrating, manipulating, analyzing, and displaying data referenced by spatial or geographic coordinates.
Storage and handling of locational information using computerised technology. Information includes basic map data, underground services data, boundary alignment, planning zone perimeters, public transport facilities, land use statistics and socio-economic data.
(GIS)--Computer-based systems for storing and manipulating geographic (spatial) information.
A computer mapping program where land characteristics and/or demographic information are color coded and often overlaid. The purpose is to determine locations of certain activity.
Subject: Laboratories ArcGIS Server, ArcIMS, and ArcSDE are used to create and manage server-based GIS applications that share GIS functionality and data within organizations and to many other users on the Internet. ArcIMS is a scalable Internet Map Server for publishing maps, data, and metadata over the Web using standard Internet protocols. more information[ Pics List
