Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are computerized spatial decision-making tools that work with place-based information and allow users to display, manage, and analyze geographic data. Since coastal features typically show distinct spatial patterning, coastal managers and scientists have incorporated this technology from its beginnings. However, coastal data often represent dynamic, multidimensional systems that present problems to this historically land-based technology.
