Part II: Section A
Using GIS Technology
4. Findings/Summary

The final step in assessing goose damage on crop yields is the findings/summary (Figure IIA-31). Maps, graphs, and reports are all products of GIS analysis. These documents summarize findings, highlight relationships, and provide field statistics. They are a way to communicate and summarize the analysis results. Meaningful maps and charts are the final products from your analysis.

4.1 Maps

Maps can be created that provide valuable information (Figures IIA-32 and IIA-33). Maps provide a visualization of spatial data.
