A Geographic Information System (GIS) captures, stores, analyzes, manages, and presents data that refers to or is linked to location. GIS applications are tools that allow users to create interactive queries, analyze spatial information, edit data, maps, and present the results of all these operations.

In 2002, the ICT Division developed a capacity in development of Geographical Information System (GIS) and processing of spatial data in support of PIDE research programs. The ArcView GIS software is being used by the ICT staff to present results of the research produced at PIDE on maps and also to develop other GIS applications.
