Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a system for the analysis, manipulation and storage of geospatial data. It also acts as a mechanism to define issues, track progress, predict the future, evaluate patterns and understand trends of geospatial data.
Architecture and GIS are connected through applications such as site development planning, inventory of assets, and looking at the impact of your development on natural and built environments. While using a GIS, you can explore real-world scenarios with a high degree of detail and accuracy which can help you organize and visualize your project.
