Geographic Information Systems
Data visualization is the presentation of the information in a graphical format. It identifies the area that requires attention and improvement; moreover, it refers to the approaches that used to communicate insights from the data by the visual presentation. It is usually used interchangeably with terms such as statistic graphics as well as information visualization. Big data analysts and the tools of the visualization increase the capacity of the information systems. Data is necessary to keep users conscious of the meaningful variations in the metrics as they provide the data for making the decisions in real-time.
Geographic information systems have expanded their area of services as well as applications in different fields. The evolution of the data visualization and geographic systems has also occurred as advances in the computer technology Enterprise data mashups consolidate the information from the plethora of sources that mix the applications. These are systems that encourage users to explore and present the complex data that are relied on the tools that vary in the degree of the abstraction. Geographic information systems can exchange several aspects with each other because they are the same in the elements of the processing of the information. It uses the data that comprises a location; thus, it is displayed in the map or picture form (Turban, Volonino, & Wood, 2015).
As an IT manager, I could check the best gadget in the market for increase the geographic information system and data visualization in the association; moreover, organizations stored the huge measures of the information as well as records in their framework that changes the visualization of the data.

Data Visualization and Geographic Information Systems
I read section 11, I have learned more information about the geographical information system and data visualization. As an IT manager, I can use graphical information system and data visualization with effective manners. Both the term plays the most important role in all types of business organization. Visualization is the use of data description, which is assisted by computers. Data visualization allows the use of computer graphics to display patterns, events and interactions between data elements. Through easy pull-down options and mouse-clicks, it can create pie charts, bar charts, scatter plots, and other data graph types. In other forms of visualization, the colors are carefully chosen (Chawla, Bamal, & Khatana, 2018, pp. 37-38). When using color to reflect data, they must pick effective colors to differentiate between the data components. Data were abstracted and outlined in the visualization of data. Spatial variables like location, scale, and shape are key elements of the data. A visualization program can perform data reduction, convert the original data set and project it on a screen.
On the other hand, GIS is a computer system that examines and displays physically referenced information. It uses data annexed to a special location. Many federal, state, and local government entities depend on GIS for tasks such as redistribution, infrastructure planning and allocation of funds, such as resource entities such as the Soil Protection Service, the Forest Service, the United States Geological Survey and the many armed forces branches. Additionally. Businesses and companies are recognizing the value of GISs, both as management tools and as a market for applications and data processing devices. GIS technology emerged from a series of computer-based programs designed to perform spatial operations during the 1960s (Goodchild, 2009, pp. 1037-1043).
Communicating IT information to other departments could be achieved by building trust amongst many departments by maintaining strategic plans and goals for each quarter and ensuring a healthy competitive spirit within the company organization. By subsidizing higher customer support and also collecting client input and adding up the discrepancies and analyzing the presence of the business enterprise in addition, the IT manager of the company may help to cooperate.
