Description:
Today, GIS has evolved into a crucial tool for science-based problem solving and decision making. GIS uses the power of information technology to examine geographic knowledge in ways that would be extremely time-consuming and expensive if done manually. The map metaphor remains the dominant medium for sharing our collective geographic intelligence, and widespread use of GIS technology is creating a revolution in how we understand our world and plan for the future.
