Geographic Information Systems
Geographic information systems (GIS) technology can be used for scientific investigations, resource management, and development planning. For example, a GIS might allow emergency planners to easily calculate emergency response times in the event of a natural disaster, or a GIS might be used to find wetlands that need protection from pollution.
What is a GIS?
In the strictest sense, a GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations. Practitioners also regard the total GIS as including operating personnel and the data that go into the system.
How does a GIS work?
What's special about a GIS?
The way maps and other data have been stored or filed as layers of information in a GIS makes it possible to perform complex analyses.

    Geography Matters to Schools, Libraries, and Other Neat Places
    Geography is part of our everyday lives. It's part of our neighborhood, our nation, our planet. It's part of the things we come in contact with everydayweather, traffic, the quality of our water and land, the economy. Often overlooked because we see it constantly, geography is everywhere.
    GIS Basics
    Geographic information systems (GIS) software can help learners of all ages grasp the ways in which geography matters. GIS helps students and teachers engage in studies that require and promote critical thinking, integrated learning, and multiple intelligences, at any grade level. This is your home for information about using GIS in K-12 schools, public or college libraries, museums, nature centers, and other sites for educating the public.

    Spatial Data Welcome to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Home Page. This page is maintained by the National Data Administration Office of Information Resources Management, located in Lakewood, Colorado. We are expanding our involvement in GIS activities in the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), with an emphasis on the spatial data aspects of GIS These include coordinating Metadata efforts in FWS, assisting offices by locating free or low cost spatial data, providing general evaluations on the quality of that data, providing a platform for sharing Metadata and spatial data, and serving as a clearinghouse for other GIS topics such as data standards, training, the A-16 process, global positioning systems, contract information, and technical notes. Deb Southworth Green maintains this information and serves as a central contact point for spatial data issues within FWS. She works closely with the Regional GIS Coordinators and members of the GIS Steering Committee on coordination issues, and referring local GIS questions back to them. She can be contacted via the e-mail address at the bottom of the page, or at 303/274-3574. GIS SPATIAL DATA TOPICS USFWS GIS search tips, tricks and hints!
