Abstract
Geographic information systems (GIS's) have gained wider use and acceptance in the geosciences over the past several years and now are being used in engineering fields as well. To demonstrate some of the capabilities of gis's for engineering data manipulation and presentation, this paper discusses an application at the U.S. Bureau of Mines of a GIS called "arc/info" to merging engineering data with geological and geographical data to evaluate vertical stress conditions in mines. Arc/info consists of a cartographic (locational) information system and a linked relational database containing nonlocational information.
