The Geographic Information System (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing, analyzing and interpreting complex data. Rooted in the science of geography, it is a technology that stimulates innovation. Defined as “the Science of Where”, GIS combines mapping and analytics to reveal deeper insight. Geo-Intelligence is invaluable and relevant; particularly in the world’s response to global crises such as the corona virus pandemic. GIS provides insight into complex datasets required for planning and sustainable action.
