Describing and Evaluating a GIS Application
GIS involves the organization of many different aspects into a system. These
aspects are interdependent. In this exercise, you will discuss the aspects of a GIS in
terms of the definitions from Chapter 13.
Write an essay that systematically describes the components, issues, and activities
of a GIS application.
Using Chrisman's definition, organize the outline for an essay that includes the com-
ponents, issues, and activities described in the text. Make sure to address the accu-
racy, conventions, and goals of the application you choose.
