WHAT IS GIS?

GIS stands for Geographic Information Systems. GIS software allows businesses to capture location information and incorporate it into their data. This data can then be analysed and shared in a map format.

GIS is a growing industry as more businesses use geographic data to manage their operations. Adding mapping visualisation to data allows users to more easily see trends, patterns and relationships when planning and reporting. The system also allows real time updates which supports accurate reporting.

Esri’s ArcGIS is the one of the most highly regarded GIS software packages. At Gather, we use their applications along with their desktop analysis tools and online services to provide all round collaboration, analysis and data management tools.
