What is GIS

Geographic Information Systems

GIS consists of hardware, software and data working together to display multiple layers of vector, raster, and data files simultaneously to understand and visually solve geographical problems and provide new insights into answering questions about the human and natural world we inhabit.


New and exciting maps, atlases and geospatial data available in the map room or from the Maps & Cartography resources guide.
