What is GIS?
"A Geographic Information System is an information system that deals with spatial
information. Often called 'mapping software', it links attributes and characteristics
of an area to its geographic location."
What is sustainability?
"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of
the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet
their own needs."
