WHAT IS GIS?

The Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying of all types of spatial data, including graphic and non-graphic spatial data, on Earth’s surface to help users to analyze social, economic, environmental problems. As an integrated system with multi-functions, GIS can help individuals and organizations better understand spatial patterns and their inter-relationships.

GIS can be used as a critical tool in several sectors such as urban and regional planning, agriculture, forestry, landscape planning, geology, defense, security, tourism, archeology, local governments, education and environment for both problem solving and decision making processes.

General Directorate of GIS at Ministry of Environment and Urbanization is in charge of establishing and developing the National Geographic Information System; identification of standards for urban information systems in local governments in relation to their activities on planning, mapping, infrastructure and superstructure; management of National Geographic Data Portal.
