Contact Person: Susan L. Mettle

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a set of computerized tools (including both hardware and software) for collecting, storing, retrieving, transforming, and displaying spatial data. GIS is essentially a marriage between computerized mapping and database management systems.

The real estate industry has always known geography matters—after all, real estate practitioners coined the phrase "location, location, location." Since location is what GIS is all about, Colin Fox & Associates can offer GIS-based tools for all segments of the real estate industry (see Demographic & Economic Data), as well as consulting services for cities and economic development foundations looking for GIS-based solutions to attract new development.

Think of GIS as a powerful presentation tool. A GIS creates high quality maps that communicate considerable amounts of information in an efficient and attention-getting manner. "A picture is worth a thousand words."
