Academic Program Improvement on An Introduction to Geographic Information Systems: Enhancing Data Analysis, 29 March 2017 held at UP Cebu School of Management Lounge, Cebu City

Knowledge and use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provides a third dimension in data analysis, particularly in discovering and understanding spatial patterns that may be present in data gathered for marketing, operations, finance or human resource-related research. Recognition of any spatial patterns from geographically referenced data could provide a fresh insight into the formulation of business/functional area strategies thereby enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of organizations. It is worthy to note that the use of this tool has become practical today because of the availability and/or affordability of open source GIS software and data gathering technologies.
