Title: What is GIS?
Url: https://serc.carleton.edu/introgeo/gis/what_is_GIS.html
Publisher: Carleton College (Northfield, Minn.)
Description: This starting point site explains that Geographic Information Systems (GIS) represent a quantitative means to collect, analyze and present spatial information on paper or in computer format. At the introductory level, GIS can be considered to include any methods that develop and present quantitative spatial relationships within a data set. This broad definition allows the introduction of resources used to create such relationships without necessarily using advanced GIS hardware/software. GIS skills are useful to students who intend to pursue science and non-science careers. Links to sites that explain GIS basics are included.
