Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software is a tool that allows users to analyze and display spatially based data. GIS software offers a mechanism through which evaluators can visualize data to reveal relationships, patterns, or trends. It can help evaluators answer research questions, solve problems, and create dialogue as it allows data to be presented in a manner that is quickly understood and easily shared. In this presentation Duncan Meyers of the University of South Carolina will a) demonstrate basic features of GIS software, b) show examples of its uses, and c) provide resources for further learning.
