Geospatial Information System (GIS) software and implementations are widespread and span almost every business functional area. You can find GIS projects in local county wide implementations, commercial businesses, and large federal programs. GIS is integral to defense, homeland security, emergency management, healthcare, agriculture, law enforcement, telecommunications, social media etc. We’ll explore the basics of GIS what it is and where to learn more about it. More importantly, we’ll examine the top 10 key factors to consider when managing a project that has a geographic component.
