- a series of ordered groupings of people or things within a system; "put honesty first in her hierarchy of values"
- the organization of people at different ranks in an administrative body
- a state of equilibrium
- equality between the totals of the credit and debit sides of an account
- proportion: harmonious arrangement or relation of parts or elements within a whole (as in a design); "in all perfectly beautiful objects there is found the opposition of one part to another and a reciprocal balance"- John Ruskin
- equality of distribution
- remainder: something left after other parts have been taken away; "there was no remainder"; "he threw away the rest"; "he took what he wanted and I got the balance"
- Libra: (astrology) a person who is born while the sun is in Libra
- Libra: the seventh sign of the zodiac; the sun is in this sign from about September 23 to October 22
- bring into balance or equilibrium; "She has to balance work and her domestic duties"; "balance the two weights"
- symmetry: (mathematics) an attribute of a shape or relation; exact reflection of form on opposite sides of a dividing line or plane
- counterweight: a weight that balances another weight
- poise: hold or carry in equilibrium
- balance wheel: a wheel that regulates the rate of movement in a machine; especially a wheel oscillating against the hairspring of a timepiece to regulate its beat
- be in equilibrium; "He was balancing on one foot"

A geographic information system is information that is what
Geographic information is information that has some spatial component, usually in relation to the earth. The information is stored in spatial co-ordinates and can be one of a variety of geometries, such as a single point, a line of points or an enclosed line of points such as a polygon.
A geographic information system can support spatially referenced information. Many kinds of information can have a spatial component. A geographic information system is capable of understanding the spatial nature of the information and provides functionality that supports it.
For example, a dataset of national parks in a non-geographic system has no awareness of the geographical position of the park. In a geogrpahical information system the geometry of the park and its spatial location on the earth can be described. With this kind of information the parks can be queried and compared based on geographic properties, such as:
- the distance between parks
- the boundary length or area of the park
- spatial querying, for instance parks that are within a bounding area
- spatial comparison, what's the biggest park? What is the nearest park to some point?
Geographic information systems can often also visualise geographic data: for instance, Google Maps can display the geometry of road information.
Information about relative location can be use to find the location
based on where your standing.
