Description:    A Geographic Information System/Spatial Information Management (GIS) is a collection of software
                and geographic data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically
                referenced information. In a conservative sense, it is a computer system that is capable of
                integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying geographically referenced
                information. In a more generic sense, GIS is a tool that allows users to create interactive queries
                (user-created searches), analyze the spatial information, edit data and maps, and present the
                results of all these operations.

                GIS, as an information integration tool, has a wide range of application. The possibility of
                integrating spatial and alphanumeric data has made it widely applicable to a variety of fields.
                Recently, there has been a growing interest among organizations to use GIS to enhance the
                decision making processes, at both strategic as well as operational levels. GIS addresses many
                information needs of the decision makers. It helps them leverage their spatial data more efficiently,
                by visually bringing together relationships among customers, suppliers, and competitors.
                GIS systems have been widely accepted in the transportation industry since its inception in this
                sector during the late 1980s. During last few years, GIS has emerged and matured to a
                sophisticated technology and is now applied to a wide range of transportation research and
                development projects. The main advantages of a GIS for transportation (GIS-T) are quick access
                and precise analysis of data, distributed across the transportation network. GIS software can
                rapidly retrieve relevant information from various sources, such as traffic flow, land use,
                environmental and socioeconomic databases, etc., that can be useful for the transportation

                One of the key market trends of GIS in the transportation market includes ‘Geographic Data Mining
                and Pattern Analysis’ (search of patterns in geo-databases). It will become more important in the
                transportation sector, as information regarding traffic congestion and space-time correlation
                become available through Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Location Based Services (LBS).
                Conventional GIS tools are not effective in handling massive and complex spatial, and temporal
                linkages in the transportation and land use systems. Geographic Data Mining will help in
                determining relationships such as effect of a crash on traffic, or traffic pattern on a newly
                constructed highway, etc.

                The report by TechNavio Insights forecasts the size of the Geographic Information System (GIS)
                market in the transportation industry over the period 2008-2012. It segments the GIS market into
                various geographic regions (representing the market size for each of these regions). Further, it
                discusses the various GIS categories, key market trends, drivers and challenges of the Geographic
                Information System (GIS) market in the transportation industry, and profiles some of the key
                vendors of this industry.
