What Is The Difference Between Geospatial And GIS?

 

WHAT IS GEOSPATIAL?

All forms of GIS are a type of geospatial technology, but not all geospatial technology is a form of GIS. More specifically, Geospatial is a broad term that defines the collective data and associated technology that has geographical and space components attached to it and various types of geographic imagery, cartography, mapping coordinates, tools, and technology.

TYPES OF GEOSPATIAL TECHNOLOGY.

  • Remote Sensing
  • Global Positioning Systems
  • Geographic Information Systems.

WHAT IS GIS?

geographic information system (GIS) is a specific tool or aspect of geospatial technology, it is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, integrating, manipulating, and displaying data that come from diverse sources such as remote sensing devices and approaches, census reports and charts, maps (topographic and thematic), and field surveys.

GIS refers to a system where geographic (spatial) and non-geographic(non-spatial) information is stored in layers and integrated with geographic software programs so that spatial information can be created, stored, manipulated, analyzed, and visualized in charts, graphs, plans, maps, and other forms both in digital and analog platforms.

Any of several techniques involving the display or analysis of spatial data including the use of maps, graphs, aerial photographs, and satellite images are GIS.

GIS is best suited to process spatial data and analyze data about locations, where things are located, locations of dumpsites in a particular city, the nearest route to the hospital, population of people or consumers in a particular area or region.

GIS is a technology that allows for the capture, management, analysis, and visualization of spatial data. Geospatial refers to anything having to do with geography and space. So, GIS can be referred to as geospatial information systems. The three key activities that comprise geospatial practices are data management, analysis, and representation. Data management includes activities such as data acquisition, cleaning, and integration. Data analysis includes activities such as spatial query, overlay, and choropleth mapping. Data representation includes the production of maps, charts, and graphs.

It helps you connect information you have about a physical location, then you can get a better understanding of your subject.

SUMMARY.

  • GIS is a tool used in Geospatial.
  • GIS data is a form of Geospatial data.
  • Geospatial is a broad term that includes various types of geographic imagery and mapping technology and GIS is a specific form of that technology.
