Geographic information system (GIS) refers to a system that is designed to capture, store, manipulate and analyse geographical data. This type of information system is used for planning and designing layout for land use and management. The data collected and stored by the GIS can be used for varied purposes ranging from transport, disease-outbreak analysis, draught analysis, land occupancy, etc.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
