GIS stands for Geographic Information System and refers to the
processing of information related to space and time (spatio-temporal)
here on Earth. Commonly used on maps to show the relative
location of objects, either as a snapshot or over time.
A GIS software solution is designed to record, collect, manipulate,
analyze and interpret all types of spatial or geographical data. GIS
data can be used within a telematics solution to provide additional
insight when managing a mobile workforce, such as approaching weather.
Standards for processing GIS data are developed by an open consortium
known as the OGC
In addition to
public domain GIS solutions, several commercial vendors provide GIS
software to businesses including ESRI and CARIS. Other companies offer
geospatial SDKs that allow developers to build mapping solutions that
can utilise GIS data.
