  5. 5. Advantages GISCan cope with larger amounts of dataCan cover large study areas (the whole world if necessary)Can cope with unlimited and frequent edits and changesMore robust and resistant to damageFaster and more efficientRequires less person time and money
  6. 6. Limitations of GISData are expensiveLearning curve on GIS software can be longShows spatial relationships but does not provideabsolute solutionsOrigins in the Earth sciences and computer science.Solutions may not be appropriate for humanitiesresearch
