A vital component of any GIS and mapping project involves the ability to take spatial and tabular data and run an advanced analysis. Information in a GIS is linked to a spatial reference used to store and access data. GIS data layers can be recombined or manipulated and analyzed with other layers of information.

A good example of this would be utilizing a map direction service, such as Google Maps or Mapquest to determine the best routing from point A to point B. These services utilize GIS in a sense that the roads and other features are depicted in a graphic form, and on the back-end you have a database or tabular information that analyzes the best route based on the information contained in that database. The results, after the analysis is ran, is a graphic representation of the optimized route that a user should take, along with reporting that describes the directions in a text file.

Creative Map Solutions provides the service of analyzing spatial and "non-spatial" related datasets to identify relationships between features. Data within a common layer or across layers are queried or manipulated based on tabular and/or spatial characteristics to provide better decision making based on a customer's needs and desired outcome.
