The Significance of GIS Mapping Software

GIS mapping software plays a crucial role in infrastructure asset management by providing a digital platform for storing, analyzing, and visualizing spatial data. Traditionally, asset managers relied on paper-based maps and manual processes to track and manage infrastructure assets. However, the advent of GIS mapping software has transformed this landscape, offering advanced features such as interactive mapping, data integration, and real-time updates. SiteMap® stands out as a premier solution in this domain, empowering users to utilize accurate, up-to-date maps of underground utilities and infrastructure assets.

There are four trends that are expected to forge the way in the world of GIS mapping and capabilities: 

  • Widespread advancements in location-based technologies: Accelerated progress in geospatial technologies, including location-based services, is expected to add impetus to GIS industry dynamics over the upcoming years. Moreover, the mounting use of cloud-based GIS platform is likely to further boost market growth.
  • Penetration of GNSS systems in precision applications: With regards to component, the GIS market from the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) antenna segment is projected to depict a commendable 10% CAGR through 2024. This is attributed largely to the novel frequencies and signals emerging in modern GNSS platforms, which will position the products as crucial components in GNSS receiver functioning.

  • Innovative initiatives by prominent GIS industry players: The competitive landscape of the GIS industry is characterized by the emergence of numerous innovations in geospatial technology. Initiatives such as partnerships and product development are also likely to intensify competition in the overall business landscape. Platforms like SiteMap® are in line to take the lead, advancing the technology, and simplifying the methods.

  • Development of sat-nav technologies in North America: On the regional front, the North America geographic information system (GIS) market is anticipated to hold more than 35% market share by 2024. This growth is ascribed mainly to the rapid growth of geospatial technology, including the introduction of novel satellite navigation systems.
