Going Green with GIS: Analyzing climate change

Environmental scientists and physical geographers have long been studying the distribution and spatial patterns of air and water pollution. Although the general scientific understandings are that air and water pollution creates diseases and impacts the health of people, very few quantitative and spatially analyzed researchers published in demonstrating the impacts or causes. Reducing the risks caused by climate change is an immense challenge for scientists, policymakers, developers, engineers, and many others have used geographic information system (GIS) technology to better…

Cartography and more in the digital age: GIS

What and How GIS is an acronym for geospatial information systems. It is a combination of hardware and geospatial software for capturing, storing and analysing spatial data. Computer images of maps combined with databases of that corresponding map give an information which could be used many different purposes. Almost all information tends to have a geographical information component in them meaning every information is tied to a place. So in a case of a disaster or any other emergency, the…
