Geographic Information Systems is a question and answer site for people interested in GIS, Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, Geodesy and Surveying, as well as Programming/Databases specific to the aforementioned. It is built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we are working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about GIS. Our Help Center provides further guidance to help in posting good questions and answers.
Although the scope of questions appropriate here is wide, befitting the range of GIS applications, please make an initial effort to research the answer before you ask a question. That will help you write a great, focused question that gets excellent answers. Questions that are too basic (meaning the answer is indexed in any number of general internet reference sources designed specifically to find that type of information) will be closed.
This is a page that moderators of the site can edit, and its current wording stems from How should we describe GIS Stack Exchange on its Tour page?
I think the two paragraphs currently serve our community well.
However, with the addition of one word I think it would serve our community even better.
Rather than suggest that word at the outset, I would like to ask whether anyone has any suggestions for slight re-wording of these two paragraphs that they would like to see?
Don't forget that these are only the first two of seven paragraphs on that help page so any suggestions should also stay in context with the remainder.
