The use of GIS applications in military forces has revolutionized the way in which these forces operate and function. Military forces apply GIS in a variety of applications and also in monitoring of possible terrorist activity. Governments of developed nations especially the US have started policies to map areas that are prone to natural disasters; such initiatives will increase investments in GIS software and also the number of users.

Widespread Adoption and Social Acceptance of Geographic Information Systems

Increasing acceptance of Geographical Information System technologies by several businesses lead to the emergence of newer map forms and processing environment. Several vendors started offering Geographical Information System SaaS services and tailored application based GIS solutions. The emergence of integration and inter-operability standards lead to improved flexibility of GIS applications with custom views and display capability, and integration of other analytical tools. This resulted in widespread adoption and social acceptance of GIS technology in a variety of applications.

GIS systems were increasingly integrated with global positioning systems (GPS) and remote sensing imagery systems. GIS integration with GPS brought the technology into the palm of the hand for understanding geographic positioning with instant digital maps. The new processing environment and evolution of display technologies have significantly transformed GIS application for spatial information.
