🗺 With over 1000 uses and applications for GIS, we may not even realize how many ways Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is being utilized in our everyday lives. 🗺
📍Understanding data can be difficult, but GIS gives us the ability to visually communicate geospatial information.
📍GIS allows users to create maps that display geographic data, managing large sets of data, and analyzing data to find patterns, eliminating the strait of depicting data.
🧭 Geographic Information Systems gives users a better understanding to the interpretation of relationships to location, patterns, and trends. 🧭
To help better understand GIS uses, consider the three main components:
1️⃣ Data – with two main types, raster and vector, data is stored as thermic layers.
2️⃣ Hardware – from mobile phone, powerful servers, to personal GIS workstation, these types of hardware are what keep GIS software running.
3️⃣ Software – specializing spatial analysis by using math to map data. Leaders in GIS software include: ArcGIS and QGIS.
