Geographic Information System (GIS)

A computer system capable of storing, analyzing, and displaying data and describing places on the earth's surface. GIS is both a database designed to handle geographic data as well as a set of computer operations that can be used to analyze the data. In a sense, GIS can be thought of as a higher order map.
