Inside of WebMapSolutions we repeat often “GIS anywhere, anytime, on any device”. The phrase is actually included in our mission statement.
But what does this phrase mean to us?
We will jump around a little in this blog post in explaining.
Some while ago we wrote an article entitled The Democratization of GIS. In the post we wondered whether GIS is like the automobile of the early 1900’s, and paraphrasing Henry Ford:
“I’m going to democratize GIS, and when I’m through, everybody will be using the technology.”
The democratization of GIS is about mass market adoption.
