GIS: A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, interpret, and understand data to reveal relationships, patterns, and trends.
We posted earlier about the 2013 jamboree story map, a project that combines the best of GIS with some pretty cool images of the jamboree. That effort represents just the tip of the geospatial technology iceberg used at the Summit.
With capabilities ranging from emergency management services to useful smartphone apps for navigating the Summit, GIS is a multifaceted tool that helps the Summit run smoothly during jamboree and annual high adventure programming.
