A Geographic Information System/Spatial Information Management (GIS) is a collection of software and geographic data used for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. In the strictest sense, it is a computer system that is capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying geographically referenced information. In a more generic sense, GIS is a tool that allows users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze the spatial information, edit data, maps, and present the results of all these operations.
With the rapid development in hardware, software and GPS technology, GIS is increasingly being integrated into engineering projects. Today, the governments and corporate around the world are incorporating GIS into different phases of infrastructure life cycle;
such as surveying, planning, design, construction and maintenance process. Instead of using GIS as a standalone system, the companies are integrating GIS into their existing infrastructure, which is helping them increase their efficiency and take better decisions. Certain factors like database integration and lack of digital infrastructure are inhibiting the growth of GIS in the Engineering sector. These issues need to be addressed to keep this industry in the high growth trajectory.
