GIS is a great program that integrates physical and social geography. Native Americans are becoming technologically advanced by using this modern program. This program is very helpful in mapping out land that is owned by the tribe and the sustainability of resources. For example, land that is strictly used for agriculture can be mapped out and boundaries can be created with land that is being used commercially. GIS is a great program that can help many officials create plans locally, regionally, and internationally.
