ABOUT GIS SYSTEMS:

 

A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing and displaying many different kinds of data on a single map.

Overview from Esri

For example, it can combine data about a community's housing density, traffic patterns, schools and public transportation. Or, it can display information about farms, factories, power lines, wetlands and wildlife.

Virtually any combination of data can be collected on a GIS map, making it easier for planners and local officials to study the relationship between all of the issues, analyze their patterns and trends, and then make informed decisions on behalf of citizens.

The resources below may help you find the GIS information you need.
