2. Pemahaman yang baik tentang konsep

dasar analisis spasial (dan BUKAN
pengetahuan untuk memakai software)
adalah esensial untuk memecahkan
berbagai masalah spasial dengan SIG.


Bagian 2
Overview tentang GIS atau

Towards a Definition of GIS
The relatively recent technology, rapid rate of development, commercial
orientation, and diversity of applications make no clear, unambiguous
definition of GIS
The term of GIS can be applied to computer technology, integrated
systems for use in substantive applications, and as a new discipline
Different point of views on the central point: hardware-software
(systems) vs. information processing (science)
GIS is also seen as a special case of information systems in general;
information is derived from the interpretation of data
Information is now a valuable asset and commodity with a high price (g-
On the basis of the tasks performed, two types of information system
are present, i.e. transaction processing systems and decision support
systems (Maguire, 1991)

Towards a Definition of GIS

Transaction processing systems focus on

recording and manipulating the occurrence of
operation. Examples: banking and airline
reservation systems

Decision support systems emphasize on

manipulation, analysis and modeling for
supporting decision makers (e.g. politicians,
government officials)

Definisi GIS dari Beberapa

Definisi GIS (lanjutan)

Key Points
All definitions have a single common feature, i.e. GIS are systems which deal
with geographical features

In GIS, reality is represented as a series of geographical features defined

according to two data elements: geographical (locational) and attribute
(statistical or non-locational)

Geographical data element is used to provide a reference for the attribute

Key features that differentiate GIS from other information systems include
spatial entities, relationships and spatial analysis

Check these terms: Geographical vs. spatial; aspatial vs. attribute data

Relationships of GIS and other
Information systems

Maguire (1991)

Sejarah Geokomputasi, dan Posisi GIS

History (contd.)

Three Views of GIS
Map, database and spatial analysis views

The map views focuses on cartographic aspects of GIS

Database view emphasizes the importance of a well-designed and

implemented database

Spatial analysis view emphasizes on the importance of analysis and

modelling in which GIS is seen more as science than technology.

Definition of spatial analysis: studying the locations and shapes of

geographic features and the relationships between them (Kennedy,

Elements of GIS
Four basic elements: Computer hardware, software, data and

Three Important Steps of GIS

Data preparation and entry

Data analysis

Data presentation or

Spatial Data and Geoinformation
Data: representations that can be operated by a
Spatial data: data that contain positional values
Geospatial data: spatial data that are
Information: data that have been interpreted by
human being
Geoinformation: specific type of information that
involves the interpretation of spatial data
Real world and its representations
A representation of some parts of real world can be
considered a model of that part.

Models can come in many forms and in GIS the most

common model is a map. Map is a graphic representation of
real world at a certain level of detail.

Another model in GIS is database. Database is a repository

capable of storing large amount of data. Spatial database is
a specific type of database that stores representations of
geographic phenomena in the real world to be used in a GIS

The Power of GIS
Its ability to organize and integrate multi datasets
together by geography (integrator)

Spatial analysis as a key functional power

Compiled definitions of GIS

An integrated collection of hardware, software, data and

liveware which operates in an institutional context
(Maguire, 1991)

A computerized system that facilitates the phases of data

entry, data analysis and data presentation especially
when dealing with georeferenced data (ITC, 2001)

A collection of computer hardware, software, and

geographic data for capturing, storing, updating,
manipulating, analyzing, and displaying all forms of
geographycally referenced information (Kennedy, 2001)
