Abstract
Geographical information systems (GIS) aim to help decision-makers to relate different types of data in a spatial context and to reach conclusions about these relationships. This research examines the potential areas that a GIS could be applied within multinational finance corporations. The results highlight the importance of combining the financial aspects of the multinational with its operational functions. Furthermore, the results show that the ability of the GIS to model financial information, as well as the ability of the GIS to integrate with other systems while maintaining data integrity were the two most preferred GIS design features.
