gis description
GIS Description:
  • GIS is a computer system capable of capturing (when paired with a GPS), storing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information
  • The power of a GIS comes from the ability to relate different information in a spatial context and to reach a conclusion about this relationship

gis examples
GIS Examples:

This vector data model represents real-world features as points, lines, and polygons whose boundaries are defined by x,y coordinate pairs.

cad description
CAD Description:
  • CAD software is used to create precision drawings or technical illustrations. CAD software can be used to create two-dimensional (2-D) drawings or three-dimensional (3-D) models.
  • Often partnered with a CAM (Computer Aided Machine) or Mill for precision fabrication.

cad examples
CAD Examples:

These CAD drawings illustrate how lines are layered to create a precision “how-to” in a referenced space. At left is a 3-D model rendering of a motorcycle.

summary
Summary:

The difference between CAD and GIS systems is becoming blurred with the internal attributes and database linkages enhancing CAD’s capabilities.

conclusion
Conclusion:

GIS is a database program, and CAD is a graphics program. With CAD, it's the lines that are important, i.e. the drawing is the information. With GIS, the lines are just a representation of the data behind it.
