DUBLIN, December 9, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —

 Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global GIS Market in the Government Sector 2014-2018" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

A GIS is a set of tools used to interpret geographical or geospatial data or information. This system digitizes the received geospatial data and processes (stores, interprets, analyzes, and manipulates) them to provide the required output.

The analysts forecast the Global GIS market in the Government sector will grow at a CAGR of 10.00 percent over the period 2013-2018.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global GIS market in the Government sector for the period 2014-2018. To calculate the market size and the vendor share, the report considers revenue generated from sales of software, data, and services in the following segments: Traditional GIS, GPS, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Geospatial Engineering, and Other GIS Application Products.

The report, the Global GIS Market in the Government Sector 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global GIS market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

A GIS solution requires geographical information or spatial content to prepare ready-to-use maps for critical decision-making purposes. However, collecting information from some regions is not easy and indeed might prove impossible. In order to collect spatial content pertaining to those regions, government organizations have started using satellite imagery for the measurements. Satellite imagery is available in different models such as 3D terrain models, stereo imagery, multi- and hyper-spectral models, and digital surface models.

The choice of model is dependent on the specific requirements of the end-user. For instance, the use of satellite imagery for GIS mapping is seen extensively in some EMEA countries where it is difficult to obtain land and terrestrial information. The availability of advanced satellite communication is the main driver of this trend, which is expected to be seen in other developing countries too. Hence, the trend of using satellite imagery for GIS mapping will positively impact the growth of the Global GIS market in the Government sector.

According to the report, the need for efficient land management is one of the major drivers. Using a traditional system for land administration could result in discrepancies between the latest survey results and the data held by the government, which can lead to land scams and other illegal practices. To prevent unlawful practices and improve efficiency of land management, the focus has been shifted to advanced GIS tools.

Further, the report states that lack of awareness of GIS technology in developing countries is one of the major challenges in the market. The Global GIS market in the Government sector is dominated by developed countries such as the US, the UK, Canada, and Japan.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
