The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) has announced the publication of the 2005 Geospatial Technology Report. The seventh in a series from GITA, the 149-page report contains detailed information on the complexity, direction, and completeness of GIS projects being implemented at 294 organizations—a 44% increase in participation from the 2004 edition.
The 2005 Geospatial Technology Report addresses GIS projects in six markets: electric, gas, water, pipeline, and telecommunication utilities, as well as the public sector. Information in each industry section focuses on land base accuracy, sophistication, maintenance cycles, application usage, and interfaces, as well as the top 10 applications and technologies. This year’s report contains over 300 tables and charts.
New to the report this year are charts illustrating the manner in which various technology trends are developing, with up to six years of archived data. In addition, information regarding budgets, data-sharing capabilities, and the top three geospatial issues faced by each market are addressed for the first time in this year’s edition.
