Abstract
  • This paper explores the confusion that exists between general definitions of what constitutes a GIS or CAD system. Then a comparison and contrast is made of microcomputer versions of GIS and CAD programs using as examples two of the most popular, pcARC/INFO and Aut0CAD. The differences and similarities are discussed through the hardware requirements, software functions and capabilities, data structure, data accuracy and the advantages/limitations of each program. The conclusion indicates a need for an intense evaluation of the user’s current and long term graphical and informational needs, then the design of a dynamic system to fit those needs. What is important is the communication of information to decision makers to allow better evaluations and decisions to be made at all levels.
