    The first attempt to answer this question was made in 1832 while marking the distribution of cholera cases per unit of population on a map. This is considered to be also the first attempt to analyze data in the context of spatial location, and this is a starting point for understanding a Geographic Information System (GIS).

    For a long time the complexity of manual processing of a large amount of data limited the development of GIS, as well as any system essentially working with a huge array of data, but starting from 1960, with the introduction of computer graphics, the development of GIS picked up pace.
