What is GIS?
The four major components of a GIS are:
- Hardware – used to store, process and display digital map data
- Software – performs GIS operations/analysis
- Digital Map Data – manipulated and managed by the GIS
- Procedures – followed to perform various operations
A GIS has four general functions:
- Input – digitizing, editing, data reformatting, etc.
- Analysis – overlay, buffering, querying, modeling, etc.
- Data Management – handling of large sets of geographic or cartographic data; overseeing storage and retrieval of same.
- Display and Conversion – graphic output (maps, plots), reports, tabular data, etc.
A GIS is used to automate, manipulate, analyze and display geographic (spatial) data in digital form. There are two generic classes of spatial data:
- Locational data: describes the location (coordinates) and topology (spatial relationships) of geographic feature.
- Attribute data: describes the characteristics of these features
Attribute data is linked to locational data by common feature numbers which occur in both coordinate/topology data tables and attribute data tables.
