GIS is a computer system designed for capturing, storing, integrating, analyzing and displaying data from a geographic perspective.

USES OF DATA LAYERING IN A GIS:

1. GIS organizes geographic data into a series of thematic layers and tables.
Because data in a GIS are referenced to geography, they have real-world locations and could overlay one another.

2. GIS links the location to each layer (such as people to addresses, buildings to parcels, or streets within a network) to give a better understanding of how the features interrelate.
