How GIS is becoming Important part of Web Industry
There was a time when GIS was used for telecommunications, utilities, and oil & gas sectors. However, we are entering an era where GIS  has become service-based. This means the GIS professional connects with consumers directly through web-based applications. This helps businesses to access and analyze data across different network.
Spatial analysis is important to any business that values location as a variable to success. Site selection is a crucial function that is dependent on geospatial analysis. Data can be overlaid onto a map to perform statistical analysis in order to make better decision now-a-days. This has also evolved in integration of big data operations into spatial analysis which gives companies huge data to work with.
Internet of Things (IoT) also plays a huge role in modern era where it is directly integrated into a GIS layer stack, where the data is analyzed, visualized, and reintegrated into online applications.
Special application for iPhones or Android devices has been designed to collect geospatial data or explore it visually, anywhere and at any time. Professionals in the field can use these apps for data collection or as observational data, which they can then bring directly into an enterprise services environment in the cloud.
