Aurora, Colo., May 1, 2006-The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) is pleased to announce that it has launched the data collection process for its eighth annual Geospatial Technology Report.

The report will contain detailed information on the complexity, direction, and completeness of geographic information systems (GIS) projects being implemented at more than 300 infrastructure-based organizations around the world. Users with active GIS implementations are invited to complete the survey at User organizations that complete the survey will receive a free copy of the report. The 2005 edition is currently selling for $399 for GITA nonmembers and $259 for members. The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, June 2, 2006.

Other than company name, number of customers, and start date of the companies' GIS, all information is kept confidential, and none of the data provided is associated with the responding organizations in the published report.

The survey saw a record 44% growth in 2005 as nearly 300 user organizations participated. GITA is hoping to continue growing the survey by making it easier to fill out. New this year, information from past participants has been saved, so they can simply login and enter in updates and new data.

"This survey is becoming a powerful benchmarking tool that allows user organizations to get a clear and current picture of their industry sectors," said GITA Executive Director Bob Samborski. "The report has greatly expanded over the last few years, and our ultimate objective is to make this report a standard for users as they continue to push the limits of the technology."

The report is GITA's best-selling publication, and is widely hailed as one of the major industry surveys of the geospatial community. The 2005 report is available now at
