What is GIS?

What is GIS?

GIS is a method of using computer systems to collect, organize, manipulate and display geographic data to answer questions about the world. It is a system designed to combine many different types of geographic features and analyze the relationships between them in a single framework. 

GIS and GPS Instruction

The SLU Libraries GIS Program supports GIS across the curriculum with help for faculty, staff and students. We provide one-on-one instruction, class instruction, technical support, and help with the use of GIS in research design.

We are also able to identify spatial data sources for use in research or class projects. The GIS staff is available Monday thru Friday 8:30 - 4:30 to instruct students and faculty in the use of GIS and GPS. Student GIS Technicians are available for technical support Sun – Thurs evenings in the Eleberty Spatial Analysis Lab.
