What is GIS? GIS is a technology at the heart of spatial analysis, used to map things and locations to answer questions, detect patterns, tell stories and make insights that cannot be inferred from spreadsheets and charts. It is a science and discipline in its own right, which is recognised by the new Geography with Applied GIS programme at Exeter and the success of its graduates. Find out how the University of Exeter is leading in GIS teaching on our website.
