GIS gives us a new, modern worldview, understanding, and help us to analyze and manage our own business and surrounding. Geographic Information Systems are powerful IT tool which gives us a few benefits:
The Psychologists have found that the information is perceived and analyzed much easier when it is in the form of map. Using GIS, you can visualize the location of the objects. Combined and represented in different layers, they reveal patterns and trends, without the use of GIS will remain hidden.
With GIS we have the ability to map and quantifying, and after that we can be able to take good decisions. For example, the health officers use GIS for analyzing the healthcare. They represent the amount of doctors who are serving for 1000 people in every administrative area. That is how they know which health center is about to be closed.
In some areas it is difficult to determine which area has higher concentration of the objects. That is why the maps, which show density, are so important for the different analyzes like demographic analysis, market research and many others.
Use GIS to monitor what’s happening and to take specific action by mapping what’s inside a specific area. For example, we can model the flood risk if we have the population and the available infrastructure in this specific area.
One of the advantages of using GIS is that we can analyze the changes occurred in time. We are able to examine and model changes, on the basis of which we can predict future weather conditions. For example, the meteorologists learn the hurricane’s trajectories to predict where and when they may occur in the future.
