A GIS or a Geographic Information System is a computerized or digitalized data management system or software that is being used to manipulate, manage, capture, store, retrieve, analyze, and display dimensional geographic information. The entirety of a certain GIS map is usually presented on a paper or other hard-copy materials.

GIS mapping is being used to create accurate imagery of the site or the location where a certain structure is going to be located. This includes the environment, the roads, and other establishments as well as the construction hazards around the potential work site.

In addition, GIS enables you to visualize, critique, and interpret the data concerned in order to understand the relationships, patterns, and trends on architectural drafting.

The benefits of GIS

  • Ideal for better decision making. GIS is greatly beneficial on better decisions as far as the site location is concerned. Real estate site selection, route/corridor selection, evacuation planning, conservation, natural resource extraction, etc. are just some of the matters where GIS can be applied. You have to keep in mind that the geographical location of a certain structure is a huge factor to the success of a certain business or to the accessibility of a certain residential property.
  • It encourages improved communication. The GIS-based maps and visualizations can greatly aide you in understanding the situations.
