A Geographic Information System/Spatial Information Management (GIS) is a collection of software and geographic data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. In a conservative sense, it is a computer system that is capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying geographically referenced information. In a more generic sense, GIS is a tool that allows users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze the spatial information, edit data and maps, and present the results of all these operations.
GIS, as an information integration tool, has a wide range of application. The possibility of integrating spatial and alphanumeric data has made it widely applicable to a variety of fields. Recently, there has been a growing interest
among organizations to use GIS to enhance the decision making processes, at both strategic as well as operational levels. GIS addresses many information needs of the decision makers. It helps them leverage their spatial data more efficiently, by visually bringing together relationships among customers, suppliers, and competitors.
