Viewing Data

GIS allows users to view, understand, question and interpret data in ways that reveal relationships, patterns and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports and charts.

GIS helps users answer questions and solve problems by looking at data in a way that can be quickly understood and easily shared. GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework.
