Geographic Information System (GIS)
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a tool designed to capture, store, sort, and compare geospatial information. GIS creates a link between site locations and information about those sites in order to map, analyze, and assess geographical data to provide economical solutions. GIS is utilized in civil engineering as a mechanism to integrate geographical features with pertinent data in order to map and evaluate on the ground infrastructure in order to solve real-world issues.
