What is Geographic Information System technology?

Maps have been the catalyst to some of the greatest discoveries in history. They have always had the power to guide and inspire, but the reach of maps has only broadened in modern times.

Smart mapping technology – commonly known as Geographic Information System (GIS) technology – has added a new dimension to the practice of analysing information.

GIS technology makes the study of spatial relationships within data possible.

The technology literally maps the geographic elements contained within an organisation’s data, exposing patterns and connections that may otherwise be hidden in a maze of numeric tables.

Government, commercial and community groups all benefit from taking a geographic view of their enterprise, across areas including:

  • Planning and analysis
  • Field force management
  • Asset and data management
  • Situational awareness
  • Citizen and customer engagement
