Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Mobile GIS Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Mobile GIS Market: Esri and Hexagon.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Rockwell Spatial, Trimble, Takor Group and Garafa.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Mobile GIS is increasingly preferred in remote locations such as underdeveloped villages and forest areas. On-premises GIS requires hardware and network infrastructure, which are largely unavailable in these areas. Instead, mobile GIS can be used to identify geographical features of a particular place suitable for crop cultivation. It is also used for the assessment of forest area.”
According to the report, the adoption of GIS technology is growing with the increasing use of mobile devices. GIS in mobile devices helps many organizations leverage maps and streamline field workflows. For instance, utility workers use mobile devices with digital maps to locate gas or water networks. Updating spatial information using mobile devices improves the efficiency of the field workforce. Mobile devices can also be used to replace paper-based surveys like work orders and censuses.
Further, the report states that technical expertise is required to develop apps that are compatible various platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows. iOS uses Objective C, Android uses Java, and Windows uses .NET. Programming in multiple platforms requires capabilities and design considerations, which is a complex process.
