summary Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are tools for acquiring, managing, analyzing, and presenting spatially related information. GIS represent parts of our world by digital maps or images. They facilitate the access to multimedial data using criteria such as geographic location or spatial proximity. Today, GIS are being used in all areas where spatial data need to be managed and analyzed. Three major application areas of GIS technology are - public administration, where GIS are used to generate and update spatially related data, - planning, where GIS support spatial decisions, e. g. in urban and regional planning, - research, where GIS help to analyze and describe spatial processes, e.g. in electoral research and environmental management.
