allows you to map the location of objects.
Natural resources, cultural resources, wildlife,
springs, wells, fire hydrants, water lines, streams, roads,
and houses are all examples of data that can be inventoried
and displayed using GIS. Terrain models can be generated
to aid with 3-D visualization. Densities and quantities
of a specific item in a given area can be calculated and
displayed, as can population changes over time.
Specific street addresses and coordinate data (i.e., longitudes and latitudes)
can be accurately situated on a map using geocoding methods.
Future conditions of resources can be predicted based on current and historical
Patterns are often more clearly observed when viewing mapped data.
GIS provides a very effective means for graphically conveying complex information.
Layouts created with a GIS are extremely useful when included in reports
A GIS can help you organize and centralize your data.
A GIS database can link
all of your organization’s
digital data together based on a location, such as address.
This could enable all departments of an organization to
have access to, and share the same data, and ensure all
departments and individuals are using the most up-to-date
information. Better access to better quality and time-relevant
data may help your organization make better decisions.
websites can provide an excellent tool for education and public
Websites can be developed with GIS software for
either the internet or a company intranet which can help your
company, organization or department effectively convey information
to members of a private group, or to the public at large. Maps
can be created dynamically and served over the web.
Collected GPS Data Can Enhance Your GIS Database.
Frank Springer & Associates, Inc. frequently
uses global positioning system (GPS) technology to
facilitate on-site data collection. Once the site-specific data is
collected, it can then be imported into your organization’s
GIS database, analyzed displayed and plotted.
GIS technology provides excellent
