GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS)
Introduction
Geographic information (i.e.., land information, spatial information) is information that can be
associated with a place name, a street address, section/township, a zip code, or coordinates of
latitude and longitude. A multitude of government functions require geographic information;
at least 70 percent of all information used by local governments is geographically referenced.
For example, property records and assessment, planning and zoning, permit tracking, natural
resource management, infrastructure and transportation management, economic development
planning, and health and public safety. All of these applications consider the location of certain
features on the landscape in relation to other features. For instance, in assessment, the location
of soil types relative to property parcels is considered, whereas in planning and zoning, the
location of animal confinement facilities relative to residential areas might be relevant. A
geographic information system (GIS) allows the user to examine and visualize these
relationships.
Defining GIS
A “geographic information system” (GIS) is a computer system that allows you to capture,
store, manipulate, analyze, manage and display all kinds of spatial or geographical data. GIS
application are tools that allow end users to perform spatial query, analysis, edit spatial data
and create hard copy maps. In simple way GIS can be define as an image that is referenced to
the earth or has x and y coordinate and its attribute values are stored in the table. These x and
y coordinates are based on different projection system and there are various types of projection
system. Most of the time GIS is used to create maps and to print. To perform the basic task in
GIS, layers are combined, edited and designed.
How GIS Works
 Visualizing Data: The geographic data that is stored in the databases are displayed in the
GIS software.
 Combining Data: Layers are combined to form a map of desire.
 The Query: To search the value in the layer or making a geographic query.
Advantage of GIS
 Better decision made by government people
 Improve decision making with the help of layered information
 Citizen engagement due to better system
 Help to identify communities that is under risk or lacking infrastructure
 Helps in identifying criminology matters
 Better management of natural resources
 Better communication during emergency situation
 Cost savings due to better decision
 Finding different kinds of trends within the community
 Planning the demographic changes
History of GIS
Modern GIS has seen series of development. GIS has evolved with the computer system. Here
are the brief events that has happened for the development of the GIS system.
Year 1854 – The term
GIS that used scientific
method to create maps
was used by John Snow in
1854. He used points on
London residential map to
plot outbreak of Cholera.
Year 1960 – Modern
computerized GIS system
began in year 1960.
Year 1962 – Dr. Roger
Tomlinson created and
developed Canadian Geographic Information System (CGIS) to store, analyze and manipulate
data that was collected for the Canada Land Inventory (CLI). This software had the capacity to
overlay, measurement and digitizing (converting scan hardcopy map to digital data). It is never
provided in commercial format but Dr. Tomlinson is the father of GIS.
Year 1980 – This period saw rise of commercial GIS software’s like M&S Computing,
Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) and Computer Aided Resource Information
System (CARIS). This all software was similar to CGIS with more functionality and user-
friendliness. Among all the above the most popular today is ESRI products like ArcGIS,
ArcView which hold almost 80 % of global market.
Component of GIS
Hardware: Hardware is the physical component of the computer and GIS runs on it. Hardware
may be hard disk, processor, motherboard and so on. All these hardware work together to
function as a computer. GIS software run on this hardware. Computer can be standalone called
desktop or server based. GIS can run on both of them.
Software
GIS Software provides tools and functions to input and store spatial data or geographic data. It
provides tool to perform geographic query, run analysis model and display geographic data in
the map form. GIS software uses Relation Database Management System (RDBMS) to store
the geographic data. Software talks with the database to perform geographic query.
Data
Data are the fuel for the GIS and the most important and expensive component. Geographic
data are the combination of physical features and its information which is stored in the tables.
These tables are maintained by the RDBMS. The process of capturing the geographic data are
called digitization which is the most tedious job. It is the process of converting scanned
hardcopy maps into the digital format. Digitization is done by tracing the lines along the
geographic features for example to capture a building you will trace around the building on the
image.
People
People are the user of the GIS system. People use all above three components to run a GIS
system. Today’s computer is fast and user friendly which makes it easy to perform geographic
queries, analysis and displaying maps. Today everybody uses GIS to perform their daily job.
Types of GIS Data
Raster Data: Raster data store information of features in cell-based manner. Satellite images,
photogrammetry and scanned maps are all raster-based data. Raster model are used to store
data which varies continuously as in aerial photography, a satellite image or elevation values
(DEM- Digital Elevation Model).
Vector Data
There are three types of vector data, points, lines and polygons. These data are created by
digitizing the base data. They store information in x, y coordinates. Vectors models are used to
store data which have discrete boundaries like country borders, land parcels and roads.
Advantage and Disadvantage of using raster and vector Data
Raster data model record value of all the points of the area covered which required more data
storage than model represented by the vector model.
 Raster data is less expensive to create computationally compare to vector graphics.
 Raster data has issue while overlaying multiple images.
 Vector data are easily overlaid, for example overlaying roads, rivers, land use are easier
than raster data.
 Vector data are easier to scale, re-project or register.
 Vector data are more compatible with the relational database management system.
 Vector file sizes are way smaller than raster image file sizes.
Raster Formats
ADRG – ARC Digitized Raster Graphics
RPF – Raster Product Format, military etc.
Vector Formats
AutoCAD DXF –AutoCAD DXF format by Autodesk
Cartesian coordinate system (XYZ) – simple point cloud etc.

Raster model are used to store data which varies continuously as in aerial photography, a satellite image or elevation values (DEM- Digital Elevation Model). Vector Data There are three types of vector data, points, lines and polygons. These data are created by digitizing the base data. They store information in x, y coordinates. Vectors models are used to store data which have discrete boundaries like country borders, land parcels and roads. Advantage and Disadvantage of using raster and vector Data Raster data model record value of all the points of the area covered which required more data storage than model represented by the vector model.  Raster data is less expensive to create computationally compare to vector graphics.  Raster data has issue while overlaying multiple images.  Vector data are easily overlaid, for example overlaying roads, rivers, land use are easier than raster data.  Vector data are easier to scale, re-project or register.  Vector data are more compatible with the relational database management system.  Vector file sizes are way smaller than raster image file sizes. Raster Formats ADRG – ARC Digitized Raster Graphics RPF – Raster Product Format, military etc. Vector Formats AutoCAD DXF –AutoCAD DXF format by Autodesk Cartesian coordinate system (XYZ) – simple point cloud etc.
