Road Centerline Grant Announced For immediate release September 14, 2005 The Arkansas State Land Information Board announced the release of the Arkansas Centerline File Grant . The grant is in response to the growing need for the development of current and accurate road centerline data across the state. Sebastian County Judge David Hudson, Vice-Chair of the Board and a local champion for the project said, "This grant will serve a lot of counties that need this information built. This project will help public safety and economic development and I am very proud to have been a part of developing this grant." here for more information about the grant program.

What is GIS?
Geography is information about the earth's surface and the objects found on it, as well as a framework for organizing knowledge. GIS is a technology that manages, analyzes, and disseminates geographic knowledge.

Geographic Information Systems
GIS is a technology that is used to view and analyze data from a geographic perspective. The technology is a piece of an organization's overall information system framework. GIS links location to information (such as people to addresses, buildings to parcels, or streets within a network) and layers that information to give you a better understanding of how it all interrelates. You choose what layers to combine based on your purpose. Learn more about the technology Within a few hours of the destruction of Space Shuttle Columbia , GIS accurately modeled the shuttle's debris location and distribution.

Poster side 1
Geographic information system (GIS) technology can be used for scientific investigations, resource management, and development planning. For example, a GIS might allow emergency planners to easily calculate emergency response times in the event of a natural disaster, or a GIS might be used to find wetlands that need protection from pollution.
What is a GIS?
A GIS is a computer system capable of capturing, storing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information; that is, data identified according to location. Practitioners also define a GIS as including the procedures, operating personnel, and spatial data that go into the system.
How does a GIS work?
Relating information from different sources
The power of a GIS comes from the ability to relate different information in a spatial context and to reach a conclusion about this relationship. Most of the information we have about our world contains a location reference, placing that information at some point on the globe. When rainfall information is collected, it is important to know where the rainfall is located. This is done by using a location reference system, such as longitude and latitude, and perhaps elevation. Comparing the rainfall information with other information, such as the location of marshes across the landscape, may show that certain marshes receive little rainfall. This fact may indicate that these marshes are likely to dry up, and this inference can help us make the most appropriate decisions about how humans should interact with the marsh. A GIS, therefore, can reveal important new information that leads to better decisionmaking.

Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Conservation and Management
Applied Biomathematics has several current and recent projects related to the use of geographic information systems (GIS) in conservation and management of species and landscapes. These research projects involve GIS-based habitat modeling, and link landscape data to population viability analyses. If you are not familiar with these concepts, you can read short introductory material in the following pages:
