Geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyse, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographical information science or geospatial information studies to refer to the academic discipline or career of working with geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of Geoinformatics. GIS is a broad term that can refer to a number of different technologies, processes, and methods. It is attached to many operations and has many applications related to engineering, planning, management, transport/logistics, insurance, telecommunications, and business.

Remote sensing is the process where the Remote sensors collect data by detecting the energy that is reflected from earth. These sensors can be on satellites or mounted on aircrafts. The electromagnetic radiation is normally used as an information carrier in remote sensing.. Remote sensors gather information by measuring the electromagnetic radiation that is reflected, emitted and absorbed by objects in various spectral regions, from gamma-rays to radio waves. To measure this radiation, both active and passive remote sensors are used. Passive remote sensors record natural sensors that is reflected or emitted from the earth surface. The most common source of detection is sunlight. Active sensors use internal stimuli to collect data about earth.
Remote sensing methods are used to gain a better understanding of the earth and its functions. A Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) is being developed to connect earth observation systems around the world. A comprehensive and coordinated system of earth observations could lead to better management of environmental data and could fulfil numerous societal benefits.

Geographic Information System software is designed to store, retrieve, manage, display, and analyse all types of geographical and spatial data. GIS software lets you produce maps and other graphic displays of geographic information for analysis and presentation. With these capabilities a GIS is a valuable tool to visualize spatial data or to build decision support systems for use in multiple organizations. GIS stores data on geographical features and their characteristics. The features are typically classified as points, lines, or areas, or as raster images. On a map city data could be stored as points, road data could be stored as lines, and boundaries could be stored as areas, while aerial photos or scanned maps could be stored as raster images. GIS stores information using spatial indices that make it possible to identify the features located in any arbitrary region of a map.

Digital Earth concerns the integrated use of digital technologies to monitor, map, model, and manage our planet’s environment and it is the global invitation for the collaborative effort between the Earth science, Space science and Informative science. The Digital Earth vision was first proposed by Al Gore in 1998, and has evolved to keep pace with rapid developments in earth-sensing, cloud computing, and Big Data and it is arguably a digital “mirror world,” storing and managing access to everything that is known about the planet. Digital Earth is an integral part of other advanced technologies including: earth observation, geo-information systems, global positioning systems, communication networks, sensor webs, electromagnetic identifiers, virtual reality, grid computation, etc. It is seen as a global strategic contributor to scientific and technological developments, and will be a catalyst in finding solutions to international scientific and societal issues.

Geographic Information Systems that offers a radically different way in which we produce and use the maps required to manage our communities and industries. A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map. Once the desired data has been entered into a GIS system they can produce a wide variety of individual maps, depending on which data layers are included. GIS maps can also use to show data about density and number. GIS` technology combines database, mapping and statistical methods to integrate georeferenced data into visual displays where the relationships, patterns and trends in the data can be more easily identified.

Seismology is the study of earthquakes and seismic waves. Seismic waves are the waves of energy caused by the sudden breaking of rock within the earth or an explosion. They are the energy that travels through the earth and is recorded on seismographs. GIS helps to manage the impact of Earthquakes and other disasters by assessing risk and hazard locations in relation to populations, property, and natural resources, Integrating data and enabling understanding of the scope of an emergency to manage an incident and identifying staging area locations, operational branches and divisions, and other important incident management needs. Geodesy is the science of accurately measuring and understanding three fundamental properties of the earth its geometric shape, its orientation in space, and its gravity field as well as the changes of these properties with time. In relation to GIS, geodesy provides the fundamental framework for accurate positions on or near the Earth’s surface.

GNSS is a satellite system that is used to pinpoint the geographic location of a user's receiver anywhere in the world. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) include constellations of Earth-orbiting satellites that broadcast their locations in space and time, of networks of ground control stations, and of receivers that calculate ground positions by trilateration. GNSS are used in all forms of transportation: space stations, aviation, maritime, rail, road and mass transit. Positioning, navigation and timing play a critical role in telecommunications, land surveying, law enforcement, emergency response, precision agriculture, mining, finance, scientific research and so on. They are used to control computer networks, air traffic, power grids and more. Two GNSS systems are currently in operation: the United States' Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Russian Federation's Global Orbiting Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS), as well as the developing global and regional systems, namely Europe’s European Satellite Navigation System (GALILEO) and China’s COMPASS/BeiDou, India’s Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) and Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS). Once all these global and regional systems become fully operational, the user will have access to positioning, navigation and timing signals from more than 100 satellites.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing (RS) are very useful and effective tools in disaster management. Various disasters like earthquakes, landslides, floods, fires, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and cyclones are natural hazards that kill lots of people and destroy property and infrastructures every year. Landslides are the most regular geological vulnerabilities in mountain regions. Remotely sensed data can be used very efficiently to assess severity and impact of damage due to these disasters. In the disaster relief phase, GIS, grouped with global positioning system (GPS) is extremely useful in search and rescue operations in areas that have been devastated and where it is difficult to find one’s bearings. Disaster mapping is the drawing of areas that have been through excessive natural or man-made troubles to the normal environment where there is a loss of life, property and national infrastructures.

The most important component of Geographic Information Systems is its requirement for spatial data. Spatial data is any kind of information that has been collected, compiled, or processed with a spatial component, that is, a tie to a geographic location on the surface of the Earth. It so happens that this is a large segment of the spatial industry, often consuming an appreciable portion of dollars assigned to GIS implementation projects. Spatial data management is increasingly a consideration in any information management system (IMS) due to the fact that large amounts of data are being collected with spatial components. Businesses and government organizations are realizing that a traditional IMS does not allow an organization to leverage the value of spatial information inherent in their data. This has led to the development of software tools as extensions to commercial Data Management Systems (DMS) that allow for better storage, manipulation, and query of spatial data.

Geodynamics is the branch of geophysics concerned with measuring, modeling, and interpreting the configuration and motion of the crust, mantle, and core of the earth and other planets. Geodynamics is a recent discipline. It’s basically an interdisciplinary subject, but it has been the focus of attention of many different science and research centers all over the world. Consequently, Geodynamics has affected all areas related to Geosciences, environment, Natural Disaster, Mining and Urban Planning. In general, the analysis of the stressful events of the earth is one of the most fundamental discussions needed by the scientists and researchers of Geology, Geophysics, Mining Engineering, Civil Engineering and Geomorphology. That’s the premise on the basis of which scientists of geosciences have been able to provide scientific responses for the earth’s internal and external behaviors.
Geodynamics has received a very warm, astonishing welcome by scientists in recent years. The basic organizing paradigm for our understanding of the Solid Earth. Geodynamics specializes in high-end Geographic Information Systems, offering a broad spectrum of GIS services from simple data conversion to complex hydrographical data processing, data modelling and analysis.
