Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology may be used to characterize the earth's landscape and its interaction with human activities.
Enterprise GIS (GIS information and capability coordinated across an organization) plays an important role in many USGS mission areas, as most USGS programs and data holdings have a geospatial (locational) component.
