Geographic Information Systems (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.  For example: police use GIS to help identify patterns of criminal activity; resource managers use GIS to map environmentally sensitive areas; and retail marketers use GIS to understand the purchasing characteristics of their customers.  Overlay analysis combines different data sets (Statistics Canada) to examine how multiple variables affect a single geographic location, such as the overall health of the population in a city.

ArcGIS is found in most Computer Labs on campus, including the Dr. John Archer Library.
