Geographic Information System (GIS) allows you to visualize, question, analyze, interpret and understand data to reveal relationship patterns and trends.

To best understand the impact GIS will have on your business, let us illustrate exactly how GIS will work for you.

Step 1:  You Ask
Step 2:  GIS Acquires the data
Step 3:  You Examine the results
Step 4:  You Analyze your findings
Step 5:  You Act (decision-making made easy).

GIS offers you a new way to map the world around you.

GIS can map:

Where things are:  allows you to find places that have the features you’re looking for and to see patterns.

Quantities:  Map quantities to find places that meet specific criteria so that you better understand what action to take.

Densities:  Allows you to measure the number of features using a uniform areal unit so you can clearly see the distribution.

Find What’s Inside:  Can monitor what’s happening thus prompting specific action by mapping what’s inside a specific area.

Find What’s Nearby:  GIS can help you find out what’s occurring within a set distance of a feature by mapping what’s nearby.

Change:  Map the change in an area to anticipate future conditions, decide on a course of action, or to evaluate the results of an action or policy. By mapping where and how things move over a period of time, you can gain insight into how they behave.
