The boundaries of mapping have expanded tremendously with computer innovations. By linking maps to data we create maps, systems or exhibits that are easy to see and easy to understand.

Consider just a few applications of geographic information systems (GIS):

A government can consolidate precincts and save money on elections. A timber company can schedule cutting, planting and maintenance through a GIS system. A community can analyze current growth patterns and plan for the future. A business can analyze potential sites based on population characteristics or other factors. A county can schedule road maintenance.
