How GIS Benefits McGill Projects — Celebrating GIS Day

The use of geographic information systems (GIS) has become a commonplace data source for many different industries. In fact, GIS has become so important, we now recognize November 17th as GIS Day.

What is GIS and GIS Day?

Mdd demand mcgillSpecifically, GIS is a computer-based system for capturing, storing, analyzing, and visualizing data related to positions on Earth’s surface. Professionals utilize this technology to monitor and understand highly dynamic environments and make better decisions to serve local communities and the world at large. For GIS Day we want to share the real-world applications of GIS that are making a difference in our society.

Dramatic advancements in computing power and the massive growth in geospatial high-quality data availability has taken GIS to a new level where it is being widely applied across different research fields and industries, including transportation planning and control, utility network design and management, climate monitoring and forecasting, emergency operations and hazard mitigation, agricultural production, marketing, and much more.

How McGill Utilizes GIS Technology

At McGill, GIS is essential for almost every project we work on and in most of our practice areas. This tool is essential for improved communication between the project team and clients as more detailed visualizations and maps can spur questions and improve storytelling; and for better record keeping as this technology is always improving and can provide up-to-date physical layouts in greater detail. Our professionals work diligently to stay informed with the most recent advancements and leverage rich mapping applications with their engineering tasks to serve and shape communities.
