What is GIS?
A Geographic Information System is a computer assisted system for the assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying of geographic information. Central to a GIS is a database. Typically, the database has two elements -- a spatial database describing the geography of a feature and an attribute database describing any associating characteristics.

This project would not be possible without the help of Environmental Systems Research Institute(ESRI), a leading GIS software maker. ESRI has been instrumental in encouraging the non-profit community to embrace this very useful technology.
