The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in development planning has grown rapidly over the last twenty
years.Advances in technology have contributed to a sharp increase in the supply of geographic information (satellite images,
etc.) and have also led to an increase in the demand for geographic information as new hardware and software tools have
made access to, and analysis of, this information possible at a low cost. It was previously necessary to manually create a
new map for every new theme combination, caption edit. or format modification. These tasks can now be accomplished
in a few seconds.
