Resource: What a Geographic Information Systems Is and What it Can Do (Davis-Holland 2016)

Alison Davis-Holland's GIS with a Test Drive presentation, offered as a slideshare, highlights the top ten functions that GIS can do and uses simple language to explain the capabilities of GIS and spatial analysis. The presentation provides real world examples and is a great start for learning about GIS including how and when to take advantage of the technology. GIS is a powerful tool to leverage in order to measure need, impact, and the currrent state of affairs and can be used by both local and large scale players working on expanding access to civil justice.
