Through spatialization and the application of geographic information system (GIS), social science and public policy making have further integrated data-driven methods, which has promoted the development of more comprehensive solutions to social problems. This paper discusses the application of spatialization and GIS in social science and public policy making, and emphasizes its key role in solving social problems and improving policies. By introducing spatial dimension into the process of research and policy making, researchers and policy makers can understand social problems more deeply and mine key information about groups and regions. In the field of social science, this method helps us to better understand the geographical distribution of human behavior and social phenomena, so as to make better policy recommendations. Governments and non-governmental organizations can also use GIS to accurately locate risks and needs, so as to provide social services and resources more effectively.
