‘GIS’ (Geographic Information System) Mapping is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking and displaying data related to the Earth’s surface, on one map such as streets, buildings, vegetation, etc. This enables people to more easily see, analyze and understand patterns and relationships. People can derive top information/benefits through five main components of GIS.
