A geographic information system (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing, and analyzing data. Rooted in the science of geography, GIS integrates many types of data layers using spatial location. Most data have a geographic component. GIS data includes imagery, features, and basemaps linked to spreadsheets and tables. It analyzes spatial location and organizes layers of information into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes. With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data, such as patterns, relationships, and situations—helping researchers and KAPSARC stakeholders make smarter decisions. The GIS capability at KAPSRAC is a methodological approach that crosses all initiatives and programs, and has been and will be used among research across KAPSARC. It is a platform to assist and empower research for decision-makers and KAPSARC’s stakeholders. This requires ongoing support and specialization to ensure rigorous and reliable output.
