GIS layers

Geographic information systems (GIS) allow users to create maps to visualize and understand patterns in data. Read an overview of GIS in the Encyclopedia of Geographic Information Science, edited by K Kemp.

GIS has applications in business & management, information technology, political science, city planning, public health, social sciences, the arts & humanities, as well as the natural sciences.


The maps on the left were created using GIS and are part of the larger poster, “Love Fever on Twitter,” by Ali AkbariMoghaddam. “Love Fever” is the most recent winner of EIU’s annual student map competition. View the full poster here.
