What is GIS?
  • Maps Data
  • Layers
  • Analysis by Location

3
Why is GIS Important?
  • Most data has a spatial component
  • GIS provides a method to
  • Analyze the spatial component,
  • Display the data spatially,
  • And retrieve data spatially

4
US Census Data
5
Site Selection Analysis
  • Combine client list with a map
  • Add potential sites to the map
  • Select site that is nearest to the most clients

6
Network Analysis
7
Ag Education Demographics
8
University Farm GIS
  • Layers for
  • Fields
  • Soil Types
  • Pump Locations
  • Streets
  • Aerial Photo

9
University Farm GIS
  • Soil Conductivity Example
  • Data is collected with spatial location
  • Plot represents 5100 data points

10
Advanced Applications
  • 3D modeling of Mount St. Helens
  • Based on Digital Elevation Models (DEM)
