The acronym GIS stand for Geographic information systems, a tool that allows geographers and analysts to visualize data in different ways in order to see patterns and relationships in a given area or subject. These patterns generally appear on maps but they can also be found on globes or on reports. GIS is important today because it is able to bring together information from multiple sources so that various types of work can be done.
 
GIS has many applications in various fields today. Some of which include traditional geographically related fields like urban planning and cartography, and also environmental impact assessment reports and natural resource management. GIS is also finding its way in business and related fields. Business GIS as it has come to be known is usually the most effective in advertising and marketing, sales, and the logistics of where to locate a business. GPS on the other hand stands for Global Positioning Systems. GPS devices are used in cars, airplanes and even in cellular phones.
 
The GPS is composed of 24 satellites, 20, 200 km above the earth. The satellites are spaced in orbit so that at any time, a minimum of six satellites will be in view to users around the world. The satellites continuously broadcast position and time data to users throughout the world. Using a portable receiver unit that receives data from the closest satellites, the GPS unit triangulates the data to determine the unit's exact location (in latitude and longitude), elevation, speed and time. This information is available around-the-clock anywhere in the world.
