CARIS (Computer Aided Resource Information System) is a software company that develops and supports geomatics software for land and marine applications.

The company was founded in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada in 1979 as Universal Systems Ltd. and was a spinoff from research into data structures and computer-aided cartography at the University of New Brunswick's Department of Survey Engineering (now the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering).
Today CARIS offers a line of software products to address the needs of the entire “ping to chart workflow” for marine and hydrographic organizations and take acquired hydrographic survey data from "ping", through to final product, "chart".
