The aim of this textbook is to present Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from a technological perspective. Emphasis is given to the core of these systems, which is the Geographic Database (GDB) along with the corresponding Database Management System (GDBMS). These two components are largely responsible for the performance and efficiency of a In Submarine Optical Cable Engineering, Types of Geographic Information System. The geographic information system (GIS) is a decision support system that has the various characteristics of information systems (Liu and Lin, ).The main difference between GIS and other information systems is that the information stored and processed is geographic coded, and the geographic location

Nearly 80% of the informational needs of local government policymakers are related to geographic location. As a result, the techniques of analytic mapping (t On Modeling and Analysis of Multidimensional Geographic Databases: /ch Data warehouse and OLAP systems are tools to support decision-making.

The key word to this technology is Geography – this means that some portion of the data is spatial. In other words, data that is in some way referenced to locations on the ://

Why. Because maps and spatial analysis can reveal patterns, point out problems, and show connections that may not be apparent in tables or text. The Power of GIS GIS is computer software that links geographic information (where things are) with descriptive information (what things are).
