Understanding GIS Software
There can be misunderstanding regarding what GIS is and how the term is used. Landiscor is here to set the record straight.
GIS software is an umbrella term used to describe any Geographic Information System application. What it refers to is any
software or system that manages, analyzes, and displays geospatial information. GIS software serves a wide range of
purposes and industries are creating more and more specialized systems to effectively target their needs.
GIS software allows users to identify spatial patterns and find the connections between seemingly unconnected items. |
Desktop GIS software allows the user to edit and display geographical data on his personal computer while Mobile GIS
software is used for field work. There are several ways to store and organize GIS data. Depending on the final goal,
professionals may have a preferred way to organize layers and items on the maps they have created.
For whatever the purpose, Landiscor offers state-of-the-art aerial imagery that, combined with GIS software, allows clients
to explore multiple facets of a given area. Most recently Landiscor has developed its innovative LanDiscover online program,
which compliments the desktop PhotoMapper technology. Both products utilize GIS to enhance the overall value of the high
resolution aerial imagery provided to clients.
