Geographic Information Systems enables us to explore the relationship between an object and its location and its implications to real world problems. GIS has become a part of our everyday life with the advancement of technologies such as Google Maps and GPS navigation systems. GIS helps us answer the questions of ‘where’ and ‘why’ to better understand the location of things in the world. GIS has a long history bringing together many disciplines to solve many real-world problems. GIS has evolved to become an important tool, not just for the day-to-day user, but for governments and industries, as well. These tools are used for important decision making processes and managing spatial information for a wide variety of applications. Fields such as Software Development, Database Architecture, Geography, Environmental Sciences, Urban Planning, Graphic Arts, Sociology, and Economics and are just some of the fields that use and contribute to the development of GIS. This presentation will provide an overview of the components of today’s GIS, how this is being applied in the real-world, and the role professionals have in continuing its advancement.
