2009 Geospatial Technology Report Now Available

This 144-page report contains detailed information on the complexity, direction, and completeness of GIS projects being implemented at 515 organizations-a 9% increase in participation from the 2008 edition.

Aurora, Colo. - The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) announced the publication of the 2009 Geospatial Technology Report. This 144-page report contains detailed information on the complexity, direction, and completeness of geographic information system (GIS) projects being implemented at 515 organizations-a 9% increase in participation from the 2008 edition.

The 2009 Geospatial Technology Report addresses GIS projects in six infrastructure vertical markets: electric, gas, water, pipeline, and telecommunication utilities, as well as the public sector. Information in each industry section focuses on land base accuracy, sophistication, maintenance cycles, application usage, and interfaces, as well as the top 10 applications and technologies.

"In many ways, we see this Report as the answer to a call for help for our infrastructure. These are real application examples from electric utilities, communications companies, public sector agencies – just to name a few – that are putting geospatial technologies to work to help own, operate, maintain and protect the infrastructure," said Robert M. Samborski, GITA executive director.

Provided free of charge to users who completed surveys that provided the data, the report is available for $299 for GITA individual members and $449 for nonmembers. Copies of the report may be ordered online at GITA’s Web site, www.gita.org/bookstore, or by contacting GITA headquarters at 303-337-0513 or info@gita. For information on participating in the surveys for the 2009 report, contact Kathryn Hail at 303-337-0513 or khail@gita.


The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) is the professional association and leading advocate for anyone using geospatial technology to help operate, maintain, and protect the infrastructure, which includes organizations such as utilities, telecommunication companies, and the public sector. Through industry leading conferences-along with research initiatives, chapters, membership, and other programs-GITA provides education and professional best practices.
