GIS represents a working technique more and more useful for contemporary world both in the field of theoretical research and in very many practical activities. In fact, GIS represents a system that has more informational components, reported to geographical coordinates. Components introduction, their storing, interpretation and analysis is done by means of the computer, the result being mainly the ability to see some complex information, spatially differentiated in comparison to real geographical coordinates. Secondly, GIS techniques allow combining information of different types (figures, images, maps), hardware and software components, all being under the direct coordination and determination of the human component, in order to make analyses and correlations of great complexity
