This paper is an introduction to maps created with Geographic Information Systems, or, GIS. It describes the makeup and uses of these electronic maps and goes on to describe how this material is cataloged, utilizing CSDGM and ISO 19115 standards. The paper concludes by chronicling a couple of pilot projects conducted at Smith College to store, catalog and retrieve these files.
