What is Geography and GIS?
Geographic information systems (GIS, and sometimes called spatial information systems or geomatics) integrate hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. In essence, GIS is the merging of cartography, statistical analysis, and database technology.
Geographic information science (GISc) is the academic theory behind the development, use, and application of geographic information systems. Generally, degree programs are usually in GISc, whereas GIS programs are usually certificate or diplomas.
Remote sensing is usually combined with GIS or GISc, since remote sensing is the acquisition of information using wireless devices, such as satellites, aircraft, buoys, and ships. This data is then fed into the GIS for analysis.
