Geographic Information Systems provides a practical, theory-driven overview of GIS that is supported with clear coverage of basic techniques. This treatment enables readers to understand the broad aspects of GIS without focusing on a specific software or discipline, such as engineering or by: Perspectives on Information Systems.

An information system is a set of interrelated components that collect or retrieve, process, store, and distribute information to support decision making and control in an organization.

Information systems can also be used to analyze problems, visualize complex subjects, and create new products. Alain Lamarche, in Oil Spill Science and Technology, Geographic Information Systems.

Geographic Information Systems (GISs) are designed primarily to support the integration of spatial data through the use of maps. For SCAT data management, these systems are ideally suited to displaying and analyzing summary and overview decision-making support maps, such as those presented in.

The name change of this column from "Computers and Software" to "History, Information Science, and Technology" is a deliberate broadening of its scope to relate history to both modern information science and information technology, or more accurately, information sciences (for example, computer, information, archival, museum, and library science) and technologies (such as computers.

The author believes that an understanding of the history of GIS, and the reasons they were designed will help us to understand the power of geographical information systems and geographical positioning systems of today. It is an assumption to seriously consider if we take into account how GIS can be.
