GIS for community
Educational institutions in Singapore are increasingly incorporating Geographic Information System (GIS) technology in their pedagogy to help students better understand the world around them.
With GIS technology, students and faculty can integrate and evaluate data from many sources to develop new theories and knowledge. This enables students to gain fresh perspectives on subjects like geography, economics, math, sciences, history and many others.
