( views) Nature of Geographic Information by David DiBiase - BCcampus, Geographic information system (GIS) technology can be used for scientific investigations, resource management, and development planning.

For example, a GIS might allow emergency planners to easily calculate emergency response times in the event of a natural disaster, or a GIS might be used to find wetlands that need protection from pollution.

A reasonable goal for geographic information systems is that they be capable of tracing changes in an area by storing historic and anticipated geographic data. This work provides a conceptual, logical, and physical basis for developing such a capability.

The geographical information system is also called as a geographic information system or geospatial information system. It is an information system capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying geographically referenced information.

In a more generic sense, GIS is a software tool that allows users. Geographic Information Systems and Science has become the pre-eminent textbook in its field, for students and practitioners alike.
