Geographic information systems allow individuals to view and analyze data overlaid on maps, making connections between activities based on geographic proximity. RAND researchers have been using GIS mapping for more than 20 years in a wide range of contexts, such as military simulation and modeling; analysis of health care delivery and quality; documenting neighborhood and demographic changes; land use economics; and transportation systems analyses.
