GIS Show and Tell

I felt "show and tell" school day amazement when I learned that several clients of InteractiveGIS offer guest access to portions of their InteractiveGIS-created Web-based GIS systems.  ("GIS" stands for Geographic Information System or Geospatial Information System.)

I've written that when I tell the story of InteractiveGIS making what we believe is the world’s first GIS sale on eBay, I'm asked, “What’s GIS?”

For a way to answer that question, you're invited to put on your own "GIS Show and Tell."

The Web-GIS InteractiveGIS created for New Market, Virginia was featured in the March 2010 issue of Virginia Town & City.  For more information about the article with links and images, feel free to visit InteractiveGIS on Facebook.

We'll use the Town of New Market GIS for our GIS Show and Tell.  When you go to the LogIn page, please read and agree to the Terms by clicking the check box, then click Guest Access.

I like the Map Layers tab (top left in red below) with the Details radio button selected (in red below tabs) so I can see differentiated features by color. If I click the Zoom In tool button on the tool bar (far right in red), I can then draw a box around an area of interest and it will zoom in to the extents of the box I drew.

As we've discussed in many of our posts about GIS on Handshake 2.0, GIS is about way more than maps.  It's about unimagined ways to synergistically relate data.  We're particularly interested in business data. And killer apps.  Our latest formulation looks like this:

Game Mechanics + Social Networking + GIS + Business Data
+ Algorithm, Formula and/or Idea + Mobile = Killer App

We're hoping your "show and tell" experience with this GIS from InteractiveGIS will show and tell you new ideas about your own business data – maybe even a killer app!


Another reason we're interested in GIS at Handshake 2.0 relates to geolocation marketing.  Here's an interesting post from VaynerMedia thanks to Allen J. Fuller, III.


InteractiveGIS, a custom, Web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions provider, is a client of Handshake Media, Incorporated, of which Handshake 2.0 is an enterprise.

You're invited to read more about InteractiveGIS on Handshake 2.0 and to visit InteractiveGIS on Facebook.

  1. I am interested to see how this discussion progresses!

    Also thank you for the mention!

  2. Did you log in and try it out? I wish I had thought to do a survey…

    Thanks again for your participation in this conversation!

    Can’t wait to hear if you come up with a killer app!
