Atlas*015 (AGIS) from Strategic Mapping Inc., is more than a sophisticated graphical database or mapping program for the personal computer. It is software that performs complex spatial analyses of data within a geographical framework. A geographic information system (CIS), gives the user the ability to associate virtually any event or transaction with a geographic location. From there sophisticated analyses of your data can be conducted. GISs go far beyond the more common thematic mapping programs.
