A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system designed to acquire, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. GIS can display various types of data on a map, such as roads, buildings, and vegetation, enabling users to visualize, analyze, and understand patterns and relationships more easily. 

Initially employed in military and logistical contexts, GIS now combines the capabilities of database management systems with cartographic production technologies, offering both new data visualization possibilities and sophisticated methodologies for geographic-based data analysis and correlation. 

The use of GIS tools requires specific skills related to geographic data acquisition technologies (e.g., surveying, sensing, remote sensing, etc.), geographic processing techniques (e.g., geostatistics, spatial correlation, network analysis, etc.), and the design of user-centered interfaces for accessing and managing information tailored to different user types. 

GIS finds applications in diverse fields, including traditional ones such as environmental protection, urban planning, and land management, logistics, risk management, and local taxation, as well as in newer and innovative areas such as tourism and territorial marketing, participatory processes, sustainability and circular economy, and urban and territorial energy efficiency.
