GIS Systems Market Growth is Driven by Improved Visualization and Analytics

GIS Systems has evolved significantly since its emergence in late 1960. In recent years, mapping and data analysis has become an integral part of analysing geographical space. GIS systems has been evolved from providing descriptive (where & what) to prescriptive (so what and why) information about geographical space. Maps are increasingly being used from understanding physical description of geographical space to understanding complex spatial relationships by interpreting mapping data and combining map layers.

GIS Systems Market – Key Findings

According to new analysis from Quadrant Knowledge Solutions study “Geographical Information System (GIS) Market Outlook – Market Forecast, Trends, and Analysis Through 2020″, market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2016-2020 and will reach $3.56 billion by 2020.
