What is GIS?

"A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data."

For The Loose Goat, we use QGIS to do our GIS but there are other GIS packages out there. Each having its own strengths and weakness but we think, along with many others that QGIS is the best out there.

What can you do with GIS?

GIS is a very powerful tool that has a massive range of applications, whatever your interests or business is – planning, archaeology, cartography, landscape management, public health, ecology and environment, to name but a few. With GIS, you can analyse data to help you with decision making, project management or understand location better.
