GIS can assist in the analysis of small-scale and localized data, as well, such as development trends, or watershed analysis.
The field of GIS has advanced rapidly in recent years, with the availability of rapidly increasing computer power, development of software, and proliferation of inexpensive GPS devices.
GIS Electronic mapping can serve as a powerful educational tool in the instruction of classroom students and in the administration of campuses and school districts. Electronic mapping’s availability in the educational setting is because of the accessibility of geographic information systems (GIS) that provide mapping and cartography functions in a cost-effective manner.
