Stories and presentations about GIS success are common. after attending a local GIS conference, users typically walk away feeling that GIS is a “can’t miss” technology; it offers all the “bells and whistles” needed to wow an organization.

But a large majority of GIS implementations are less than successful. a sizable amount of them often are utter failures—they don’t live up to the promise of enabling an organization with easy-to-use geospatial tools that allow end users a positive and productive experience. Why is that?

The technology has been purported as being “must have” and mission critical for the last 25 years. Shouldn’t we have learned from our collective mistakes and not continue to suffer the fate of an underutilized, under appreciated and misunderstood technology? continued…

Learning GIS programming: An overview | Geoawesomeness

Learning GIS programming: An overview | Geoawesomeness | GIS | Scoop.it

The diversity of programming languages and tools being used in the Geospatial industry today is truly staggering. Depending on what the position requires, one would be expected to have expertise in SQL, python, C++, Java or Javascript, Flex and PHP (just to name a few). Knowledge and competence in programming is a essential skill set and a critical requirement for most Geospatial job opportunities these days.  A vast majority of job openings in the Geospatial industry require some expertise in programming, application development and software management.

 

As Geospatial professionals/graduates/students, some of us overlook the importance of programming in our careers. Some of us believe that our spatial skill sets are niche enough to compensate for the lack of our programming expertise. Well that might not be totally wrong. However, knowledge of programming is most certainly going to open up a whole new array of possibilities! It might be a good idea to have a look at recent job postings in the Geospatial industry to get an overview of the requirements :)
