What Does Geographic Information System (GIS) Mean?
The Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computerized system that captures, stores and displays data based on positions on the Earth's surface.
GIS can be used in the preliminary geotechnical investigation to develop a site plan or model, and plan site activities. As further information is gathered, the site plan is modified by integrating the data into the existing model.
GIS is also capable of linking maps and photos directly to data that describe their features and allows for data to be searched and analyzed spatially.
For trenchless pipeline installation projects that pass through territory that is difficult to be surveilled by other means, GIS can be a great asset.
