DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 10, 2015 — Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3j55mq/geographic) has announced the addition of the "Geographic Information System: An Essential Tool for Operations and Business Decision Making for Physical and Virtual Networks " report to their offering.
This SPIE also looks at how the evolution of GIS coincides with changes occurring across the Operations & Monetization (O&M) domain. Maps have been essential tools since our ancestors first drew in the dirt with sticks. This ancient, yet still more sophisticated, map to the right dates back approximately 2,700 years. It was an early indicator that map making was also an art form. It still is. But it is a serious art form; particularly as it is applied to business.
Maps are used for more than accurately getting from point A to point B. They have long been used to convey important information such as controlled or enemy territory, land ownership, location of artifacts or important sites, and the paths of rivers. Mapping brought a sense of order to the world. As the practice advanced and became known as cartography, the art and science of visually conveying spatial information and creating mapspeople developed a much better sense of their place in the world, and how big that world really was.
