Geographic Information System (GIS) Market 2008-2011

VIEWS: 184 PAGES: 15

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. Governments today are facing challenges such as rapid growth in population, global warming, resource shortages, and most importantly security concerns over homeland security borders and within federal agencies and departments. Driven by the increasing need to overcome these challenges, governments across the world are increasing their interests and investments made in GIS software for land use planning, asset management, incident mapping, inspections, resource exploration etc. Rapid evolution of GIS is transforming the dynamics of its usage across different verticals. With traditional database vendors extending support to geospatial data, GIS is all set to become the mainstream application. The report forecasts the market size of GIS software over the period 2008-2011 and discusses about the key trends in the GIS software market. In addition, the report elaborates on different categories of GIS software, segmenting the GIS software market by these categories. Further, the total market is sectioned into various geographic regions and verticals. The report highlights the size of the total GIS market by verticals. In addition, it identifies the key factors driving the growth of GIS software market. This report can help IT vendors identify target geographies and verticals. Further, the sales drivers can be used to penetrate the identified vertical or increase the current share of the customer's wallet.

1. Market Size & Forecast
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 the strictest sense, it is a computer system
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,
maps, and present the results of all these operations.


According to TechNavio, the market for GIS/Spatial Information Management applications is
forecast to reach $3,693.4 million in 2011 from $3,145.4 million in 2008, at a CAGR of 5.5
percent over the forecast period (exhibit 1.1).
