Geographical Information System (GIS) is used to capture, visualise, process, and evaluate spatio-temporal data. GIS is an extremely versatile instrument that can be applied to support various decisions related to water resources management – mapping land use, measuring catchment areas, realtime flows during floods, measuring access of potable water, etc. This Tool describes in detail the two key data models in GIS and discusses the potential of GIS towards supporting IWRM. 
Geographic Information Systems: A Primer
TLDR
This paper provides a primer to GIS, including what GIS does and how it is used to produce maps and other useful information.
Geographic Information Systems in Evaluation and Visualization of Construction Schedule
TLDR
A methodology using geographical information systems (GIS) is developed to represent spatial aspects of the construction progress graphically by synchronizing it with construction schedule.
GIS Based Expert System for Energy Resource Exploration
TLDR
In this study, the techniques used to get multiple information by using GIS system are evaluated.

  • 2008
TLDR
A new GIS-T data model is presented for urban traffic incidents management, built by extending and amending ArcGIS transportation data model (UNETRANS) and UML and will increase the utility value of linear reference system in transportation system.
A Study on Potential Application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Fisheries and Aquaculture of Bangladesh
This study illustrates the potential application of geographic information systems (GIS) and spatial analysis techniques to support the fisheries management. GIS aids are familiar as an influential
PROPOSING AN ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE APPROACH FOR GIS PROJECTS
TLDR
Enterprise Architecture can provide order and strategy for chaotic enterprise GIS systems, as well as solve the problems of large numbers of duplicate, misnamed, or improperly formatted datasets.
The Importance of the Coordinate Transformation Process in Using Heterogeneous Data in Coastal and Marine Geographic Information System
TLDR
Methodological aspects concerning different data integration in CMGIS are described in order to enhance its capability to handle topics of coastal and marine applications and demonstrate that automatic conversion carried out by GIS software are insufficient to ensure levels of positional accuracy adequate for large scale representation.
APPLICATION OF GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN THE GEOGRAPHICAL RESEARCH
TLDR
This paper is an attempt to bring the applicability of GIS in the geographical research in the mountain context based on the available secondary information of various sources.
Construction and Implementation of Spatial Analysis Model Based on Geographic Information System (GIS)--A Case Study of Simulation for Urban Thermal Field
TLDR
GIS database was built firstly by Arcatalog module of ArcGIS software based on mobile observation data of urban thermal environment in Lanzhou city and space positions data of Global Positioning System, and the appropriate spatial analysis model was selected to simulate and predict urban thermal field.
