GIS has many applications in various fields today. Some of which include traditional #geographically related fields like #urban #planning and #cartography, but also #environmental impact assessment reports and natural resource #management. In addition, GIS is now finding its place in #business and related fields. Business GIS as it has come to be known is usually the most effective in advertising and marketing, sales, and the #logistics of where to locate a business.
Whichever way it’s used though, GIS has had a profound influence on #geography and will continue to be used in the future as it allows people to efficiently answer questions and solve problems by looking at easily understood and shared data in the form of tables, charts, and most importantly, maps.
