Mapping with Geographic Information Systems

Demographics in Massachusetts, land use in New York City, the rapid population expansion in China, reconstructing sea surface temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean over the last 10,000 years, collection and representation of GIS data to aid household water treatment and safe storage technology implementation in the Northern Region of Ghana: this exhibit displays some of the different projects created in the MIT GIS Lab. Geographic Information Systems enable one to combine layers of geographic information in a dynamic digital environment for analyzing and visualizing information.
