GIS also known as Geographical Information Science/System. Well, we better call it as a combination of Science and Technology.

Geographical is based on location of spatial feature on the face of the earth and its relation to other objects/features around it.
Information is purely the descriptive or statistical data that belongs to one particular area which we choose to study and the objects within that area/region.
System is the hardware & software (based on the GI Science) that is used to display, process, query, and analyze spatial data.(Eg: ENVI, ERDAS, ArcGIS, and QGIS)
