Abstract

Most readers will be familiar with geographic information systems, or GIS for short, and will think in terms of the GIS with which he or she has gained experience. Some might think in terms of digital maps that are available on the Internet, and others in terms of their areas of responsibility: property cadastre, environmental applications, or fleet management systems. Another important application is disaster management where a GIS can help save lives if rescuers receive an almost immediate and detailed picture of the environment of the disaster location.
