(COLUMBIA, Tenn. - Feb. 7, 2013) - - - Because we live in a rapidly changing world, our future is contingent on what we do today. We need greater knowledge of our environment and our relationship with it, as well as an awareness of how to protect its valuable resources. Geographical Information Systems help us better understand the world so we can meet global challenges. The technology is growing rapidly as cities and counties have begun to investigate GIS as a solution to their information processing problems. How can GIS help your company?
