More than 80% or our data has a geographical or spatial component. A Geographic Information System (GIS) analyzes this data and renders it on a map. Used in conjunction with WebFOCUS and iWay, a GIS provides a unique view of information that helps us understand how location impacts our business.
This presentation demonstrates how GIS and BI have been used to analyze problems in areas such as state and local government, law enforcement, insurance and energy production.
