"Geographic Information Systems" can be thought of as a set of computer-based tools and technologies that allow you to create, manage, analyze, and map all types of data within a specific geospatial framework.
By integrating a set of datapoints (where something is located) with rich descriptive details (what that something is, what is happening around it, etc.) into a mapping system, GIS applications can be used to present patterns and relationships that are occurring within a geographic context in a way that is easier to comprehend.
Esri, the global market leader in GIS, has brought innovation to digital storytelling through the concept of "StoryMaps", a construct that allows remarkable data-rich stories to be told using custom maps that inform and inspire by combining features like embedded text, images, videos, and other online content.
StoryMaps can now be developed using license-free, web-based GIS tools.
"There can be no doubt that the transportation sector is the most critical sector of our economy."
