GIS (Geographical Information System) is an organized digital system for data collection, storage, and analysis relative to positions on the ground. GIS offers a consistent and cost-effective means for the sharing and analysis of geographic data among government agencies and municipalities, private industry, non-profit organizations, and the general public. A geographic information system can perform complicated analytical functions and then present the results visually as maps, tables or graphs, allowing for easier decision making and action.
Most information has a "spatial" or geographic component. In other words, most information is tied to a place, an address, postal code, city, county, or geospatial coordinate. When making decisions about sighting new facilities, keeping track of existing facilities or distances from one facility to another, geography plays a significant role. With GIS, you can explore the spatial element of your data and create a visual database of existing or non-existing information.
Typically, a Geographical Information System is used for handling maps of one kind or another. These might be represented as several different layers where each layer holds data about a particular kind of feature. Each feature is linked to a position on the graphical image on a map and a record in an attribute table. GIS models can relate on the basis of common geography, revealing before unseen patterns, and relationships that are not readily apparent in spreadsheets or statistics, often creating new information from existing data resources.
With non-existing data, our company will collect the data using the latest data collection methods, and create a highly organized system with multiple layers to display your data.
A GIS model is not intended to be used with survey grade accuracy. Any boundary data shown in a geographical information system is only relative and is not to be used to resolve boundary disputes.
