Many business owners have always had to address different issues concerning the advancement of their business's. Profit? Productivity? Management? Sales? These different categories will eventually break down to subtask. Where each task can consists of large amounts of data. This data would be much useful if it were displayed visually using scientific maps, charts, or graphs.
Scientists have always had large masses of data that need to be displayed for visual understanding. Their data consists of using grids, charts and models. Scientific tools can be very beneficial to many different fields. It would be very functional if we could use scientific tools to aid with business related problems. Some scientific tools are: VIsit,VMB,IDL, ESRI, ArcVIew GIS etc.
Wouldn't it be helpful If we could take large scale business related data and display it on one of the scientific tools like for example ArcView GIS(Geographic Information System)? ArcView GIS is a geographic information system mapping tool. It allows users to visualize, explore, query, and analyze data geographically. With this data, business's can locate which parts of the globe or even the USA have high populations, low income families, demographic information etc. These types of questions are what business owners are faced with everyday and can be answered by using just this one tool alone.
