The Evolution of GIS Technology

Harnessing the Power of GIS: How Technology is Changing the Game

The world of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is undergoing a massive transformation. With a powerful suite of new capabilities, professionals across engineering, surveying, and planning are able to get more insights from their spatial datasets than ever before. Let’s explore how technology is changing the game for industry professionals  and how it can help you unlock hidden value from your spatial data.


The Evolution of GIS Technology

GIS has come a long way in recent years. What started as an innovative tool for mapping and analysing spatial data has evolved into an essential component of many organisations’ operations. Thanks to advances in technology, such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning, GIS has become even more powerful and capable—offering enhanced capabilities to capture, store, analyse, manage and present all types of location based and related  information. GIS also offers increasing abilities to integrate seamlessly with advanced positioning, measuring and scanning technologies to add value and insights to captured data.

The Benefits of Enhanced GIS Capabilities

One of the key benefits that come with the evolution of GIS technology is that it enables professionals to uncover hidden insights from their spatial datasets. For land surveyors and civil engineers, this means being able to quickly generate  visual products that  portray topography, terrain or physical features with unprecedented accuracy – something which was previously not possible without manual input or extensive processing time. For CEOs and construction project managers, this means being able to identify problems before they arise thanks to advanced analytics capabilities which enable them to make informed decisions based on real-time data from their projects.


Moreover, with improved visualisation capabilities in GIS software like Esri’s ArcGIS Online platform, users can easily understand complex spatial relationships between different elements in a map or dataset – making it easier for stakeholders in any given organisation or project to stay informed about what’s happening on the ground.  Finally, advanced collaboration tools allow teams dispersed across multiple locations – such as construction sites or engineering offices – be able to stay connected regardless of location or time zone. This helps them save both time and money while delivering high-quality results faster than ever before.


As technology continues to evolve at an ever increasing rate, so too does GIS – providing ever enhanced capabilities that support  professionals working across engineering, surveying and planning sectors to harness insights from their spatial datasets like never before. sIf you want your organisation take advantage of these powerful new technologies unlocking hidden value from your location-based  data then now is the perfect time!
