Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are used in almost all aspects of CASP research aiding research geologists to store, manage, manipulate and visualise data effectively. The unique capabilities of GIS allow rapid access to, and comparison of, different datasets at any scale.

GIS is increasingly being used not only for data display, but as a flexible means of integrating cartography and database management for research. CASP can offer advice and training in the use of GIS for geological applications.
