1. Introduction of Geographic Information System

Authors : Manish Kumar, R. B. Singh, Anju Singh, Ram Pravesh, Syed Irtiza Majid, Akash Tiwari

Published in: Geographic Information Systems in Urban Planning and Management

Publisher: Springer Nature Singapore

Abstract

A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer system that is used to store, manage, analyse and display geospatial data. GIS has been used by professionals in natural resource management, land use planning, natural hazards, transportation, health care, public services, market area analysis and urban planning since the 1970s. It has also become a crucial tool for normal operations for government organizations at all levels. GIS integration with the Internet, GPS, wireless technology and web services has recently found applications in location-based services, web mapping, in-vehicle navigation systems, collaborative web mapping and donated geographic information. You should be able to understand the following after reading this chapter:
  • Basic concepts of the GIS
  • Historical background of the GIS
  • Interrelation between GIS, Remote Sensing and Global Positioning System (GPS)
  • Capabilities and briefly understanding about the GIS
