What is GIS?

To understand more about GIS, please refer to the following breakdown:

Globe Geographic - Information with a location (parks, schools, churches, water pipes, police vehicles, fire vehicles, City personnel, etc.) 
Map Information - Data in a meaningful context (crime, demographics, City assets, customer data, schedules, etc.)
Computer System - People, methods, data, software, hardware (City Staff, GPS, plotters, scanners, digital cameras, ArcGIS, ACADD, Databases, etc.) 

Geographic Information System, commonly referred to as a GIS, is a computerized mapping system, which was first developed in 1963.

GIS can be as simple, complex or anything in-between. Users can make a simple map or perform in-depth analysis, modeling, transportation routing, reporting, charting, satellite image analysis, GPS tracking, etc.
