Geographical Information System (GIS)

Benefits of GIS

GIS is beneficiary to all organizations and every industry. The economic and strategic value of GIS is seeking attention of many due to its standards. The benefits of GIS generally fall into five basic categories:

  • Cost savings resulting from greater efficiency.
  • Better decision making can be done in real estate site selection, route/corridor selection, zoning, planning, conservation, natural resource extraction, etc.
  • GIS-based maps and visualizations greatly assist in understanding situations that improves communication between different teams, departments, disciplines, professional fields, organizations, and the public.
  • Better Geographic Information Recordkeeping can be had through GIS
  • Managing geographically is emerging as a new way to organize and manage organizations. Their assets and resources are now being maintained as an enterprise information system to support day-to-day work management tasks.

Skill advantages of GIS

  • GIS in Mapping is used widely i.e. in Google map, Bing map, Yahoo map which are the best examples for web based GIS mapping.
  • Telecom and Network services uses GIS for example GDi GISDATA enables wireless telecommunication organizations to incorporate geographic data in to the complex network design, planning, optimization, maintenance and activities.
  • Accident Analysis and Hot Spot Analysis in GIS help traffic management. GIS technology is used in Urban Planning, Transportation Planning.
