Geographic Information (GI)
Geospatial information, also known as location information, is information describing the location and names of features beneath, on or above the earth's surface.
At its simplest this can mean the basic topographical information found on a map. On a more complex level it can include different location-related datasets combined into layers that show information such as land use and population density. (Linz website)
