From field work to desktop research, the growth of GIS software application is palpable. GIS software’s unique ability to manage, analyze and display geographical information has served as a catalyst for growth across countless markets, often deemed invaluable by its many users.
But what exactly is GIS software? GIS, which stands for Geographic Information Systems, is best described as an umbrella term which relates to any application that organizes geospatial information. And its broad definition doesn’t just stop there - it translates into a broad range of uses.
When paired with state-of-the-art current aerial imagery, GIS software allows its user to easily and efficiently organize layers and items on any maps they may be interested in. This means that no matter the final goal, professionals are now able to virtually explore endless physical facets of any given area. From real estate to relevant geospatial community mapping, the combination of current aerial imagery and GIS software is being utilized by more companies than ever before.
And because of its ever-expanding reach and remarkable growth across professional and personal arenas, the technology behind GIS software only continues to improve. Constantly, new applications are being created in order to both complement and enhance the geospatial system. Desktop technologies (such as PhotoMapper) and Mobile GIS software (used specifically for field work), are two of the many new systems available to professionals looking to take full advantage of GIS.
No matter what reason one might have for organizing and managing geospatial information, by utilizing GIS software in conjunction with current aerial imagery, the overall value of the high resolution product will be enhanced significantly.
