A GIS (Geographical Information System) combines locational information (geographical information) with attributes (the characteristics of an object).

It’s a system that can help you discover geographical connections and trends, visualize, analyze and interpret data. The use of GIS-software has five major advantages:

  • A more efficient workflow which means cost savings
  • A better decision making process
  • Sharing information becomes easier which improves communication
  • Managing your data becomes easier
  • Geographical management becomes part of your daily workflow
