Geographic Information System:
A GIS is an organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information

Use in Geothermal Exploration
GIS is used to compile all available geological, geochemical, and geophysical information for a given area of interest. Spatial and temporal relationships can then be identified and examined to potentially identify a geothermal resource. A georeferenced database that includes existing infrastructure (transmission lines, roads, etc.) can be used to prioritize potential geothermal exploration areas.
