Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are software systems and techniques used to compile and present data in visual form.  Data is presented as layers of information according to specific location.  Google Maps is a well-known example which uses GIS to compile data according to location on the map.  GIS compiled data can be very useful to better understand problems in relation to space.
