Geographic information systems

A geographic information system (GIS) is a special type of DSS designed to work with maps and other spatial information.

GIS components:

Mapping and analytic modeling software

Databases containing map images, geographic, and demographic data

A user interface to enable the manager to query the database and see the results on a map

Spatial information databases contain demographic, employment, and consumer-habit information that can be incorporated into a business-oriented GIS.
