Definitions

GIS is an acronym for geospatial or geographic information system. It is an integrated collection of geospatial data, technology, and people used to analyze and portray geospatial information and relationships.

Geospatial refers to anything that has a geographic location on the earth. If the question contains a “where,” geospatial tools will probably be the best way to answer it.
