Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Getting Started

Geographic information systems (GIS) are technologies that allow us to collect, manage, analyze, and visualize spatial data.

GIS software stacks layers of data to map spatial relationships.



Geospatial technologies are not specific to any one discipline and the library supports users from all fields of study and experience levels.
