Overview

Bigger GIS and New Technologies Push Market to New Levels
Geographic information systems (GIS) are an organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information.  GIS operates on data primarily bearing a relationship to space which is inclusive of any data about things and events that oc-cur in nature.

The volume of geospatial data that's coming from many sources is growing exponentially.  Geographic measurement is being driven by both new technologies — more satellite and airborne digital cameras, more Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), GPS, and other digital surveying devices — as well as more deployment of these technologies.

These measurements are creating more precise and comprehensive data for GIS professionals to work with.  As a result, GIS systems are getting bigger.

The proliferation of mobile devices impacts every industry and application, and GIS is no different.  Advances in GIS technology and mobile and cloud computing now enable organizations to take GIS to the field, where workers can interact directly with the information needed to view, capture, update, and synchronize changes between the field and office.

Strategic Issues
To survive and grow in this market, GIS suppliers face a number of challenges that require new thinking, business models, and strategies.  This study provides answers to strategic questions, such as:

  • How can suppliers increase their value proposition?
  • How can suppliers stand out in this market and gain market share?
  • How are suppliers addressing Big Data, cloud GIS, and mobile devices?
  • Where are the growth markets and industries?
  • Who is delivering core GIS versus applications on top of core GIS?
