-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). Geographic Information Systems. Area, 16((Dueker, K. J., & Kjerne, D. (1989): Multipurpose cadastre: Terms and definitions. American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing)) ​, 153-158.

Analyses of geodata or spatio-temporal phenomena can be presented and visualized (Goodchild, 2009)((Goodchild,​ M. F. (2009): Geographic Information System.

 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.
