GEOSPATIAL WORLD GIS is the master tech! GIS is the most used technology globally with GNSS and satellite remote sensing closely following in 2 nd and 3 rd positions. Availability of geospatial data, which has been a concern until recently, is no longer an issue world over, thanks to the proliferation of sensors. Middle East and Europe lead globally with higher satisfaction levels in the usability of available data! Here’s an insight into the complete results of Geospatial World Annual Readers’ Survey 2014. GIS 1 # TECHNOLOGY Geospatial World readers identify technologies they frequently use — from traditional technologies like GIS, GNSS, Remote Sensing and Aerial Photography and modern technologies like BIM, 3D, LiDAR, Indoor Positioning, Ground Penetrating Radar and UAVs.
