Geographic Information Systems (GIS), is an electronic data system which captures, stores, analyses and displays information that is obtained by geographical referencing. Generally, the data in these systems is stored as multi-dimensional co-ordinates in a relational database, which are retrieved to perform spatial queries and analyses.
A GIS system allows recording a base map with a geographical referencing as longitudes or latitudes and then adds additional layers of other information depending on the request made. Importantly, that information is identified using the same geographical referencing made by latitudes or longitudes. It can show many different kinds of data on one map. This enables people to easily see, analyse and understand patterns and relationships across various domains.
GIS applications have wide range of uses from locating indigenous people, communities, research institutions, environmental scientists, health organizations; land planning, telecommunications and public sector
There is no limit to the kind of information that can be analysed using GIS and as technology is growing, applications of GIS in different industries is trending. However, a point to be noted is that the accuracy and efficiency of the data retrieved from GIS is largely dependent on the availability of accurate, spatial information (as base of GIS is geography).
