Geospatial Information Systems Market Growth Driven by Migration to the Cloud

New ARC Advisory Group research on the Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) market indicates that the market continues to expand, with ARC forecasting a significant compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next five years. Geospatial information systems provide spatial data entry, management, retrieval, analysis, and visualization functions. GISs also integrate hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.

"With everything heading toward the cloud, such as documents, images, contacts, calendars, presentations, articles, and accounts, the shift of GIS toward the cloud is logical. Most of the leading GIS vendors have developed or are developing cloud GIS solutions, and a growing number of private GIS companies are also watching this space very closely. At the same time, there is also a strong need for interoperability standards like the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and web feature services. For GIS to support a digitized automated workflow, real-time data needs to be transferred between the field sensors and office solutions without any information loss, and this has increased the need for interoperability," according to Kiran Chavan, Analyst and key author of ARC's Geospatial Information Systems Market Research.
