A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing and analyzing data. With roots in the science of geography, GIS integrates many data types. It analyzes spatial location and organizes layers of information into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes. ​With this unique capability, GIS reveals patterns, relationships and situations — which leads to making smarter decisions.
