What is GIS?

    Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a technology used by governments, public health agencies, crime mapping, and many other industries for data and spatial analysis to create high impact, interactive maps.

    GIS lets us visualize, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships and trends. GIS combines data retrieved from satellites, drones, and other sources to represent data in a simple view.

   GIS is one of Hopeworks’ growing social enterprises that provides more than 20 internship opportunities for youth.
