GITA Publishes Fifth Annual Geospatial Technology Report 1.13.03

The report contains detailed information on the complexity, direction and completeness of geographic information systems (GIS) projects being implemented at 187 infrastructure-based organizations.

The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) has published the Geospatial Technology Report 2002: A Survey of Organizations Implementing Geospatial Information Technologies. The report, the fifth in an annual series from GITA, contains detailed information on the complexity, direction and completeness of geographic information systems (GIS) projects being implemented at 187 infrastructure-based organizations--an increase of 19 percent from the 2001 study.

In addition to comprehensive cross-industry analyses and trends, the 91-page report on CD provides detailed information on five industry sections: electric, gas, pipeline, telecommunications and water/sewer/storm. Information in each industry section focuses on landbase accuracy, sophistication, maintenance cycles, application usage and interfaces. Each section includes a listing of the top ten technologies and top ten applications in use by the industry. ESRI’s Bud Porter, the immediate past chairperson of GITA’s Industry Trends Analysis Group (ITAG), wrote in the report’s preface: “This information, along with the data provided by user respondents, should provide valuable insights for those using the report to help justify a new project, increase funding for an existing project, expand the use of geospatial technology to the enterprise, or just add a new application.”

The report, which is provided free of charge to survey participants, is available for $125 for GITA individual members and $175 for nonmembers. Copies of the report may be ordered online at, or by contacting GITA headquarters at 303-337-0513 or For information on participating in the 2003 report, contact Ken Goering at 303-337-0513, E-mail
