Over the years we have won many battles with government and industry - achieving bans on ozone-destroying CFCs, reduced trade in rainforest timber, increased support for cleaner energy technologies, and much, much more. 0
Future of Geographic Information System (GIS) Market According to P&S Intelligence, Global Geographic Information System market is expected to reach $17.5 billion by 2023. Increasing urbanization in addition to the surging adoption of GIS solutions in enterprise applications in developing countries is the key factor bolstering the demand for the system. The growth of the global GIS market can also be attributed to the implantation of LIDAR (light detection and ranging) technology and increasing availability of spatial data and cloud technology. Market is expected to register the fastest growth in Asia-Pacific (APAC) During the forecast period, the Geographic Information System market is expected to witness the fastest growth in APAC, owing to the increasing use of this technology by governments, and for water and wastewater management, in the developing countries of the region, including India and China. Increasing urbanization, supported by growing investments in smart cities, is expected to bolster the demand for the technology in the region in the coming years. 0

Getting Better Geocoding Results-Secrets of the Trade Geocoding is one of the best tricks you can do with GIS. What's not exciting about watching a file of sterile tabular address data suddenly take shape and illustrate themselves on a city map? But mention to a colleague that you're trying your hand at geocoding, and you'll likely see a quick flinch, maybe even a shudder. I've seen veteran ESRI Tech Support staff – people who laugh in the face of projection problems and license server administration – shy away from the topic. Why the drama? Like many subjects, the more you know about geocoding, the more success you'll experience with it. 1
GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) The GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) is a tax-exempt not-for-profit organization that provides the geographic information systems (GIS) community with a complete certification program.

How Do You Calculate the Distance Between Points? Problem: You have a set of points (in this example around 220 points, representing different locations). You'd like to know the best way to calculate the distance between points found in this layer and a specific point (other than using the measure tool). i.e. If these points represent cities, you need to know the distance between each of the cities and the capital, for example. 5

Merging Multiple Themes into One-A Step by Step Guide Before embarking on this task, you’ll want to do a little pre-planning. In ArcGIS 9.0, you’ll use an Append function to combine multiple themes (shapefiles, feature classes, etc.) into a single file.* Because you are appending data to an existing file, you will need to designate which are your input themes and which is your output theme. 5
