What is GIS?
Making Sense of Data
We understand that most critical decisions can only be possible if the correct information is visualized and analyzed. The Geographic Information System or GIS, is a specific information system applied to geographic data and is mainly referred to as a system of hardware, software, personnel and procedures designed to support capture, manage, manipulate, analyze, model and display of spatially referenced data for solving complex planning and management problems.
