GIS in real estate

Gone are the days when land investors would rely solely on the hands-on advice of real estate agents. Now, there is humungous information available at your fingertips, essentially removing the need for the traditional estate agent. This is where Geographic Information Systems (GIS) comes into the picture. GIS is a framework for gathering and analyzing data to create layered mapping displays. Estate agents can apply GIS to their online systems to show potential buyers important information, including flooding risks and land quality. With this information at hand, investors can anticipate potential issues that would ruin their investment. To keep an edge over the online competition, estate agents need to evolve. Below, we guide you through ways estate agents utilize GIS to improve their services to the end-user.
