A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.
A GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking at your data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework.
The Geographic Approach
Geography is the science of our world. Coupled with GIS, geography is helping us to better understand the earth and apply geographic knowledge to a host of human activities. The outcome is the emergence of The Geographic Approach—a new way of thinking and problem solving that integrates geographic information into how we understand and manage our planet. This approach allows us to create geographic knowledge by measuring the earth, organizing this data, and analyzing and modeling various processes and their relationships. The Geographic Approach also allows us to apply this knowledge to the way we design, plan, and change our world.
About our Data…
The GIS Data Depot houses data in support of the GIS industry. The majority of the data provided has been downloaded by our staff from a wide range of GIS Web sites located on the Internet.
There is also value added data where we have performed some translation, attribution, analysis, or other data enhancing operations. By providing all of these resources from one convenient location, GeoCommunity has made every effort to ensure that you can locate the data you are searching for in a quick and efficient manner.
