Boost decision-making and situational awareness with spatial data
Geographic Information System mapping (GIS) is a technology that brings together spatial information from multiple sources and presents it in three dimensions. It is used for mapping and as an integration, management and visualization platform. GIS mapping can integrate multiple unconnected geographic, security and safety applications and devices to analyze it spatially and control it through one comprehensive user interface.
Aided by GPS, remote sensing, the internet and the globalization of data, GIS mapping supports time-sensitive decisions, drives faster response times, saves costs, increases efficiencies and helps to inform decisions about a project or an area. 
There are many applicable sources and an increasing density of information for GIS mapping. Geo-referenced sensors, such as traffic, weather, vehicle and shot detection can be combined with information from environmental, weather, news- or intelligence-based data services.
GIS mapping then presents superior 3D and 4D situational awareness of complex information, and the ability to integrate live and recorded video streams in 2D or directly embedded in 3D. Augmented reality adds an additional graphical layer on top of video imaging showing interactive items and can support detailed projections of the future.
Integrating GIS mapping with your video management software (VMS) can facilitate safety with incident detection, security- and safety-related incidents, and fleet monitoring.
Frequently asked questions
Commonly asked questions and answers about GIS mapping.

What does a GIS map show?

A GIS map can show both man-made features like buildings and bridges, as well as natural features like rivers and trees. They can also show spatial relationships and connectivity, as well as highlight trends and patterns over time. GIS maps are essential for applications like environmental management, business logistics, urban planning and disaster response thanks to their powerful analytical capabilities and interactive elements.

How accurate are GIS maps?

The accuracy of GIS mapping depends on a few factors, such as the technology used, processing methods and data quality. Advanced software and integration techniques also enhance accuracy, making GIS maps highly reliable for many applications, but their precision depends heavily on the specific context and requirements of their use.

What is a GIS map used for?

It allows for better land-use planning, road and utility maintenance, emergency management, infrastructure assessment, and property and development management. New data sensors, from soil temperature to vehicles, traffic cameras or video feeds from stores and stadiums, increase opportunities for GIS mapping to support increased efficiencies and reduce waste. Spatial analysis in retail is helping the industry to gain invaluable insights in stock delivery, store management, inventory management, marketing and sales.

What is map projection in GIS?

Map projection is the action of converting the three-dimensional, curved surface of the Earth into a two-dimensional map. This is achieved through mathematical techniques which can create distortions to shapes, areas, distance and direction. Different mapping needs based on purpose and region are met by various types of projection, such as conic, cylindrical and azimuthal. In order to minimize distortions, you need to choose the right projection type to ensure precise spatial analysis and effective data visualization.

What is map algebra in GIS?

Map algebra in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is the foundation for performing mathematical operations on raster data (pixelated or gridded data associated with a geographic location) to determine spatial analysis and modeling. Because map algebra turns spatial data into insights, it is often used for decision-making in fields such as environmental management and urban planning.
