A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system capable of assembly, storage, manipulation and display of geographically referenced information, i.e., your data information,  identified and correlated by its location. 

Research shows that more than 85% of business and governmental databases contain critical location based information, yet most managers fail to view their information geographically; therefore missing trends or opportunities that could have been obvious if viewed in relevant spatial context.

By bringing the classic model of an atlas into the 21st century, a GIS helps improve utilization of information systems by linking databases and spreadsheets to maps, survey information, aerial photos, digital charts and/or other databases in computers.  This linkage of data allows display, access, analysis, and correlation to other new or existing databases, thus improving managersí abilities to understand situations, solve problems, explain decisions and save manpower, time and money.

  • Data linked with such systems becomes easier to locate and access. 
  • With proper conversion of massive paper files to optical storage, entire rooms of stored materials can be made instantly accessible anywhere on a network at any authorized workstation. 
  • Such files can be easily cross referenced to each other, and to other relevant files in other departments. 
  • With conversion to optical mass storage systems, entire systems can be backed up and stored off site in secure storage no larger than a bank safe deposit box.
For dispatch or vehicle tracking systems, automated map display for fleets of vehicles can be displayed in real time with the utilization of GeoPositioning Satellite (GPS) technology.  Such Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems are a further enhancement of a GIS, making it an active management tool for service and safety activities.  With an AVL system, managers for the first time can observe real timeoperations and become active participants in the management of their fleet operations. 

Similarly, with immediate access to relevant administrative and other records systems, dispatchers can relay vital information to personnel in the field instantaneously.

With active data storage links from such AVL systems, a GIS system can accumulate relevant track and routing information simply not available for management analysis or record keeping in any other way. 

As relevant as is a compass to navigation, a Geographic Information System (GIS) is the most critical management tool for success today.  For any kind of activity which uses data, a GIS system will improve your situation, make it easier to access your information, allow you to see potentials, relevant relationships, avoid pitfalls, or just plain let you see where you are going.
