What Is GIS?

GIS is a powerful software technology that allows a virtually unlimited amount of information to be linked to a geographic location. Coupled with a digital map, GIS allows a user to see locations, events, features, and environmental changes with unprecedented clarity, showing layer upon layer of information such as environmental trends, soil stability, pesticide use, migration corridors, hazardous waste generators, dust source points, lake remediation efforts, and at-risk water wells. Effective environmental practice considers the whole spectrum of the environment.
