Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a powerful concept of data visualization. GIS is the philosophy that location is important whether it is an absolute geographic location or a relative location. That the spatial attribute of any data should be recorded, tracked and leveraged in downstream activities.
The GIS Coordinator's Office is available to help students, faculty, and staff at Washington University understand, evaluate, and implement appropriate GIS technologies to achieve academic and administrative goals.
