It is said that Geographic Information System (GIS) organises, manages, visualises and models our datasets. GIS can also ‘transform a table of data into a lively artifact to be handled, studied, and challenged’ (Lund & Sinton, 2007). Outcomes from using GIS not only engages our communities, creates new insights but also integrates with other systems and technologies.
