Geographic Information Systems

A Geographic Information System (GIS) integrates hardware and software, in the capture, management and analysis of data of a spatial nature, resulting in several forms of georeferenced information. A GIS allows us to visualize, interpret, understand and question data in ways that reveal relationships, patterns and trends in the environment, through the use of maps, globes, reports, charts and graphics. By extension, this versatility allows GIS solutions to be integrated into the framework of any company information system.
