Geography and Geology
Geographers and cartographers have long been interested in using new methods that make it possible to investigate and depict different aspects of the physical and human/cultural environment. In recent years, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have proven to be useful in studying spatial relationships and may be useful in monitoring certain types of change in the environment. A GIS is most often a computerized system designed to store, manipulate, analyze, and display large volumes of spatial data. The various applications of geographic information system have yet to be explored.
