Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system designed for capturing, storing, integrating, analyzing and displaying data from a geographic perspective. GIS stores information in themes or layers that contain data about a particular kind of geographical feature. Each layer is linked to a specific position on the globe. Because data in a GIS are referenced to geography, they have real-world locations and could overlay one another. GIS links the location to each layer (such as people to addresses, buildings to parcels, or streets within a network) to give a better understanding of how the features inter-relate.
