An Own Definition

December 14, 2023

On GIS Day, hundreds of events and activities are held around the world to highlight the importance of geographic information systems and geospatial data and applications.

There is a consensus that these celebrations bring together geospatial community members, no matter where they are located. Thus, GIS can take on many forms and meanings.

But what about the definition of a GIS? Is there a universal formulation that defines it? The K2 Geospatial team decided to examine this question.

Below, you will find our team members’ definitions and favourite uses of GIS - yes, Bernard Dubuisson is part of our team! It's up to you to decide which wording best fits your own personal GIS definition!
