GIS helps businesses and organizations leverage authoritative data and easily deliver it to decision makers in ways that are intuitive and fit into their existing decision making processes. GIS is used for asset/data management, planning and analysis, business operations, and situational awareness.

Open GIS services also facilitate mashing up content to derive new meaning from available sources and then combining these sources with online spatial analytic functions to gain new perspective. These services provide the capabilities to create expressive applications that leverage data and online, spatial analytic functions.

After 20 years of working in GIS, seeing GIS rapidly evolve on the Web, shared, connected, and collaborative, in this positive way, is very exciting.

You message is one I believe is very important. To the non GIS person, this message is always hard to fully grasp, believe me many of us try all he time.

It’s not just maps or themes of maps. It’s the enormous mechanics, knowledge and intelligence, hidden in GIS that’s taken years to put in place.

Jack, I applaud you for your continued efforts to communicate this understanding. Job well done!
