Geographic information systems (GIS) refer to the gathering, storage, manipulation, presentation, and analysis of geospatial data associated with any geographic location in the world. Geographic information systems (GIS) make use of various input types, such as existing maps, satellite imagery, aerial imagery, and 3D scanners, among others, to create digital maps of geographic locations. Moreover, GIS allows the manipulation of geographic data collected from numerous sources to align with each other and store a normalized digital map. The GIS enables organizations and entities to quickly assess and compare various geographical locations based on specific natural features such as temperature, altitude, seismic activity, and the availability of resources, among others. In addition, the GIS data can contain numerous parameters, such as population, infrastructure, and demographics pertaining to any specific location. As a result, the use of GIS provides numerous advantages for government agencies and organizations that keep categorized databases of various locations. The GIS market comprises various components such as hardware, software, data, and services provided by various participants in the geographic information ecosystem.

Geographic information systems (GIS) have proved immensely helpful for various government bodies in the planning and commissioning of numerous infrastructure projects. In addition, numerous businesses have realized the potential of using geographic information systems (GIS) for various purposes. One of the supply-side drivers of growth in the geographic information systems (GIS) market is technological advancements in 3D mapping. The latest systems are capable of delivering deeper geospatial data with a higher degree of accuracy.
