Geographical Information System
|What do we call a Geographical Information System?|
A geographic information system (GIS), or geospatial information system is a system that captures, stores, analyzes, manages and presents data with reference to geographic location data. In the simplest terms, GIS is the merging of cartography, statistical analysis and database technology. GIS may be used in public utility management, natural resource management, emergency management, GIS in Environmental Contamination, landscape architecture
Therefore, in a general sense, it is an useful information system that integrates, stores, edits, analyzes, shares and displays geographic information for informing decision makers. GIS applications are tools that allow small communities representatives and engineers to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze spatial information, edit data, maps, and present the results of all these operations.
What do we provide to small communities decision makers?
We will provide them a practical and autonomous tool "a customized GIS" to help them to manage in a sustainable and long term manner their drinking water resources, and also other renewable energies.
By integrating Geographical Information Systems and then scaling up from local to national area, what are the expected results ?
- Improvement of local water management
Here it is an example:
