-A **Geographic Information System** (**GIS**) is an information system, which is based on [[:​wiki:​spatial_data|data]] referenced by geographic coordinates (Curran, 1984)((Curran,​ P. (1984).

 A **WebGIS** provides access to a GIS requiring only a web browser. It is an Internet based Geographic Information System with reduced GIS functionality (Bartoschek,​ 2009) ((Bartoschek,​ T. (2009): WebGIS für die Schule – ein Überblick. Retrieved from  [[https://​www.researchgate.net/​publication/​236340662_WebGIS_fur_die_Schule_-_ein_Uberblick|https://​www.researchgate.net/​publication/​236340662_WebGIS_fur_die_Schule_-_ein_Uberblick]])) . The best known example of a WebGIS is probably Google Maps. A **WebGIS** provides access to a GIS requiring only a web browser.
