What are the six components of GIS?

Summary: Maps are for locating and managing your city’s information. GIS mapping has been used to create highly convoluted and accurate maps from the given data. There are many useful benefits of GIS mapping apart from creating detailed maps of the cities. Let’s see how GIS mapping can be used in so many different ways. 

A lot of industries around the world are using GIS virtually to create maps that communicate, perform analysis, share information and solve complex problems around the world. Maps have made the professional environment easier and more efficient. GIS technology applies geographic science with tools for collaboration and understanding. It helps to gain actionable intelligence from all types of data.

Some of the amazing benefits of GIS mapping include:

1. GIS Mapping Helps in Asset Management:


 A GIS helps in sorting the infrastructure and utilities that lie beneath the city’s streets, curbs and sidewalks. GIS mapping is used to make detailed maps of these utility areas, like the age of the material and past maintenance reports. This makes it easier to track and manage that particular infrastructure.

2. Leads To Improved Decision Making:


GIS mapping has enhanced our ability to make informed decisions about the location of places. For example, knowing the age and type of pole can define the schedule and scope of a particular replacement project plan. Therefore, cities with older poles can be prioritized first.

3. Cost-effective and Efficient:


Promoting cost-effective mechanisms and services, GIS has increased efficiency to a great extent. GIS especially helps regarding maintenance schedules, fleet movements, or timetable scheduling.

4. Display of Information and Management: 


It has become a virtual world today, and it’s going to be bigger and better day by day. Clear visuals are enormously effective in making better decisions about a project. The GIS allows you to show all the layers of data all at once, in a clearer format. 

GIS is becoming an enterprise for information systems. Thanks to GIS, handling, compiling, and distribution of data has been made easier, Government and many other large corporations use GIS products to effectively share information and data.

5. Geo-Marketing:


Did you ever think that GIS could help in the marketing process? Integrating the power of geography into marketing planning helps the organization to respond to customers and as well as market requirements. As a result, geo-marketing is formed.

6. Easier Mapping and Charting:


GIS has the ability to produce and manage the specific data and map products according to the requirement. It’s used as an important tool for topographic, aeronautical, nautical mapping, and charting agencies. It helps in implementing an effective workflow for GIS data conversion, management, and delivery. 

The GIS allows people to see the world from a different perspective, by mapping the position and quantity of things. It also helps to find out what is happening in a specific area through its highly detailed maps which provide the location information as well as different terrains of that particular area. Who would have thought that a collection of computer software and information can be curated to form something which can be useful in so many different areas and industries? GIS mapping services these days can solve complex problems and helps in the faster completion of the project.
