Geographic Information Systems

GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is a type of software that helps people think spatially and approach problems from a geographic perspective. Spatial data reveals patterns, illustrates problems, and shows connections that are not otherwise evident. It can be used in business, history, environmental science, agriculture, civil engineering, architecture and many other areas of study.

Kennedy Library's GIS program provides GIS software, GIS consultative services, and supports GIS-related events and outreach.
