What is GIS?

In the strictest sense, a GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating and displaying geographically referenced information, such as data identified according to their locations. Unlike a paper map, where "what you see is what you get," a GIS map can combine many layers of information to produce specialized maps.
