Geospatial Technology

GIS layers stacked to form a mapGeospatial technology is a broad term that describes various software and hardware used to create and manage location information. A map is what most people envision when learning about geospatial technology or GIS (Geographic Information System) -- although the map is typically the end result following a complex set of tools and processes seeking to answer a question.

GIS is now a ubiquitous technology found in everyday products such as Google Maps. These products integrate various streams of data as well as allowing the user to query location information. GIS is not just a tool for navigation nor is it only provided by large tech companies - it is used by students and professionals in virtually every industry to add spatial awareness to their research and operations in order to gain a better understanding as well as aid in decision-making and engagement.
