What is GIS?

GIS, or "Geographic Information Systems" means a computer system for the storage, retrieval and spatial and logical analysis of geographically based data. For Benton County this means a computerized system that improves access and usefulness of geographic information about Benton County through 1.) spatial and logical analysis; 2.) graphical display; 3.) central storage and distribution; and 4.) public availability.
