Geographic information systems (GIS) provide answers to the following questions: where do illnesses proliferate, where do people who are susceptible reside, and where are the greatest resources needed to improve health conditions? Data, technology, and people who can respond to these inquiries make up GIS. And this is the time when it is more important than ever.
Health experts have utilized it to handle the COVID-19 pandemic, the opioid crisis, respiratory illnesses linked to vaping, and other illnesses and injuries in just the past year. GIS assists governmental, corporate, and non-profit organizations in making decisions that are effective and efficient, from data collection through analysis to user-friendly presentation.
