This semester, Gavilan College is offering a new Computer Science class in "GIS": Introduction to Geographic Information Systems. GIS is a computer-based data-processing tool used to analyze and manage spatial information that combines computers and geography. This expanding field is changing business, industry and government work places by providing new ways of accessing and retrieving vital information in all professions. By integrating database operations with the unique visualization and geographic analysis benefits offered by maps, GIS technology can be used by public and private enterprises for explaining events, analyzing trends and implementing planning strategies.
