Applications of GIS

While doing some research a couple of our student workers stumbled across “1000 GIS Applications”( you can find the full 1000 here 1000 GIS Application  ).  They thought it would be a cool idea to go through the list to see which applications pertain to our center and jobs we have done or are currently doing. Here are the applications we have discovered we use within the APSU GIS Center, broken down by job field.
