Geographic Information System (GIS)

A GIS is a combination of software and data designed to view and manage information about geographic places, analyze spatial relationships and model spatial processes. It provides a framework for gathering and organizing spatial data and related information so it can be displayed and analyzed. USDA-NRCS views spatial data and GIS as one of many tools to accomplish our program missions and technical needs.
