We will also link a csv file with population figures to an existing layer. Mapping has been around for a very long time but the idea to use separate map layers and overlay them was first concieved by Ian McHarg in the 1960's. By overlaying different geographical layers, he used map transparencies, McHarg was able to determine the optimal route for a proposed freeway that would have the lowest impact on areas of social importance such as parks and other social facilities. Now days the geographical layers are in digital format. The system to store, organize and manipulate these layers is known as a Geographical Information System (GIS). Simply put it is a computerized information system, managed and administered in order to be capable of holding and using spatial data to describe and analyze places on the Earth's surface. They say a picture is worth a thousand words please visit the SMS project gallery to view a few examples of GIS applications.
