What is GIS? A GIS (Geographic Information System) is a computer-based means of storing, analyzing, displaying, and otherwise managing geospatial data - that is, any data that has a plottable or mappable geographic component. More than just a means of creating maps, GIS is a powerful tool for revealing and examining how geographic relationships affect the world around us, and for solving real-world problems where location and proximity come into play. This subject guide contains information on GIS capabilities on campus, where to obtain GIS data, and resources for those who wish to further explore GIS on their own.
