Introduction

This guide is designed to assist members of the Morgan Community who are interested in using GIS in Architecture and Planning research or pedagogy.

What is GIS?

GIS stands for Geographic Information System and is a framework for gathering, managing, and analyzing data. Rooted in the science of geography, GIS integrates many types of data. It analyzes spatial location and organizes layers of information into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes. ​With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data, such as patterns, relationships, and situations—helping users make smarter decisions.
