Geographic Information System – GIS is a branch of information technology which was formed in 1960s and has been strongly growing for 10 recent years. Today, GIS is a decisive tool for many aspects such as socio-economic and national defense for many countries in the world. GIS can help governmental offices, managers, businesses and individuals… to assess the situation of natural socio-economic processes with the functions of collecting, managing, enquiring, analyzing and integrating information which is attached with a geometrical background (maps) basing on the coordinates of the input data. The application of GIS is essential for the management of groundwater and water resources in the future.
