Instead of compiling our own glossary of GIS terms, we have simply defined GIS and assembled a collection of links to glossaries from other web sites around the Internet.

GIS (Geographic Information Systems) - An organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information. Source: ESRI
