Geographic Information System [GIS] Law and Legal Definition
A geographic information system (GIS) refers to a system that integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. It allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.
The following is a example of a state law on GIS:
Geographic information system means a computerized database management system for the capture, storage, retrieval, analysis, and display of spatial or locationally defined data. [KRS § 42.722].
