GIS enable users to visualize and analyze spatial information in a dynamic, digital environment. GIS software provides tools for integrating, querying and analyzing a wide variety of data types, such as scientific and cultural data, satellite imagery and arial photography, as well as data collected by individuals, into projects, with geographic locations providing the integral link between all the data. MIT provides access to multiple GIS packages, including software from ESRI and PCI Geomatica.
