A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map, such as streets, buildings, and vegetation. This enables people to more easily see, analyze, and understand patterns and relationships.

Crowdsourcing involves obtaining work, information, or opinions from a large group of people who submit their data via the Internet, social media, and smartphone apps. With today’s crowdsourcing, technology plays a key role as it makes it possible to enlist an even larger number of non-technical people to do more complex and creative tasks at a significantly lower cost. Superior quality of content is achieved because of the involvement of a large crowd for ideas, skills, and participation. In terms of information, it will be most comprehensive. In terms of design, it will be the most conceptualized. In terms of micro-tasks, it will be the most detailed. Crowdsourcing allows you to select the best result not from a single provider but from a sea of talents. Results can also be delivered much quicker than traditional or conventional methods since it is a form of freelancing. One famous example of crowdsourcing is Wikipedia as some sort of an online encyclopedia.
