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.

U.S. Board on Geographic Names
U.S. Board on Geographic Names
Main Menu BGN Home Domestic Names Foreign Names Antarctic Names ... Links The U.S. Board on Geographic Names is a Federal body created in 1890 and established in its present form by Public Law in 1947 to maintain uniform geographic name usage throughout the Federal Government. The Board comprises representatives of Federal agencies concerned with geographic information, population, ecology, and management of public lands. Sharing its responsibilities with the Secretary of the Interior, the Board promulgates official geographic feature names with locative attributes as well as principles, policies, and procedures governing the use of domestic names, foreign names, Antarctic names, and undersea feature names. The original program of names standardization addressed the complex issues of domestic geographic feature names during the surge of exploration, mining, and settlement of western territories after the American Civil War. Inconsistencies and contradictions among many names, spellings, and applications became a serious problem to surveyors, map makers, and scientists who required uniform, non-conflicting geographic nomenclature. President Benjamin Harrison signed an Executive Order establishing the Board and giving it authority to resolve unsettled geographic names questions. Decisions of the Board were accepted as binding by all departments and agencies of the Federal Government.

Vol. 60, No. 3 by Victoria Lynn Packard Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is truly one discipline that displays the breadth and strength of the Internet. With a computer and access to the Web, a user has the ability to solve the problems of today and tomorrow. A user can create his or her own Utopia. GIS can be used by anyone; the environmentalist, city planner, demographic specialist, architect, and many others may benefit from it.
The resources listed below are some that I use for Geography and GIS Internet training classes. I chose sites with a multitude of links to other areas. These sites cover such areas as government, education, and commerce. Included are resources for dictionaries, newsgroups, mail lists, and periodicals to show the spectrum of material available in GIS. So enjoy and have fun creating your world! Dictionaries
As with any other discipline, GIS has its own terminology, abbreviations, and acronyms. Listed below are a few Internet sites that provide easy access to this information.

Welcome to WHO's Public Health Mapping and GIS programme
From public health mapping and GIS to global health surveillance Role of GIS in public health mapping
In order to properly plan, manage and monitor any public health programme, it is vital that up-to-date, relevant information is available to decision-makers at all levels of the public health system. As every disease problem or health event requires a different response and policy decision, information must be available that reflects a realistic assessment of the situation at local, national and global levels. This must be done with best available data and taking into consideration disease transmission dynamics, demographics, availability of and accessibility to existing health and social services as well as other geographic and environmental features. Geographic information systems (GIS) provide ideal platforms for the convergence of disease-specific information and their analyses in relation to population settlements, surrounding social and health services and the natural environment. They are highly suitable for analysing epidemiological data, revealing trends and interrelationships that would be more difficult to discover in tabular format. Moreover GIS allows policy makers to easily visualize problems in relation to existing health and social services and the natural environment and so more effectively target resources.

Cartography and Geographic Information Systems A geographic information system (GIS) is simply a database of information about natural and man-made geographic features such as roads, buildings, mountains... These systems can be used for making maps, but also for analyzing data e.g. for facility location. There has been some communication between the geometry and GIS communities (e.g. geographer Michael Goodchild gave an invited lecture on "Computational Geography" at the 11th ACM Symp. Comp. Geom. ) but more could be done to bring them together. Geographic problems already visible in the geometry community include interpolation of surfaces from scattered data , overlaying planar subdivisions, hierarchical representations of terrain information, boundary simplification, lossy compression of elevation data (e.g. by using a piecewise linear approximation with few facets), and map labelling. Other interesting geometric issues include handling of approximate and inconsistent data, matching similar features from different databases, compression of large geographic databases, cooperation between raster and vector representations, visibility analysis, and generation of cartograms (maps with area distorted to represent other information such as population). A particularly important geometric data structure in geographic analysis is the Voronoi diagram , which has been used for to identify regions of influence of clans and other population centers, model plant and animal competition, piece together satellite photographs, estimate ore reserves, perform marketing analysis, and estimate rainfall.

Kansas Geographic Information Systems Policy Board
The Kansas GIS Policy Board is responsible for the development of standards, strategies, and policies that emphasize cooperation and coordination among agencies, organizations, and government entities in order to maximize the cost effectiveness of GIS by creating public and private partnerships throughout Kansas. The board, consisting of 37 members appointed by the Governor from state and local government agencies as well as public, private, and academic interests, provides review, coordination and recommendations for GIS programs and investments. . This partnership is further reinforced by individuals serving in the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC), the MidAmerica Geographic Information Consortium (MAGIC), and the Kansas Association of Mappers (KAM), reaching GIS organizations and individual professionals. Each of these relationships serves to promote the development and adoption of GIS standards at all levels of government, and furthers the education and professional development of all participants.

Board Endorses Surface Water Stewardship At its final Board meeting on December 5, 2007 the Arkansas State Land Information Board endorsed the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) as the state's steward for the National Hydro Data (NHD) set. The NHD GIS data consists of surface waters such as rivers, streams, lakes, reservoirs and other surface water features. In this role ADEQ will receive error reports on the NHD GIS layer from authorized users, coordinate data updates, and coordinate the state's submissions in the national database maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey. Board Tasks AGIO to Complete Statewide Centerline Development The State Land Information Board tasked the Arkansas Geographic Information Office to develop the project specifications necessary to complete the road centerline file program in the remaining counties. In several of the remaining counties this will require address conversion from route and box style to city style addressing plus road centerline mapping. Staff from the Office estimated the remaining counties could be completed by early 2009.
