Geographic Information Systems at University of the Fraser Valley

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computerized data management system that allows people to visualize, investigate, and interpret information related to their world. GIS has become increasingly prevalent in industry, research, and academia within a wide variety of fields. Applications of GIS range from creating maps displaying information of interest to using spatial analyses to detect relationships, patterns, and trends in location-based data. As such, GIS can be an essential tool for mapping, research, and decision making.
