in all of these fields, it is vital to know just where you are. A coordinate system allows you to locate any particular location. Using the same coordinates, you can always locate it at a later time.
For reasons why it is important to know location in these areas of endeavor, you'll need to do some further research. 
alright thanks. do you have any suggestions for websites I could look at?
