This LibGuide provides information on key resources for Geographic Information Systems including:
"In a GIS, you connect data with geography. And you understand what belongs where. Because you don’t fully understand your data until you see how it relates to other things in a geographic context. Geographic Information Systems is a computer-based tool that analyzes, stores, manipulates and visualizes geographic information, usually in a map." (Source)
