Abstract

In 2004, the U.S. Department of Labor identified geospatial technologies as among the most important emerging and evolving fields within the economy. Seven years since that report, and with the ubiquitous use of Geographic Information Systems Internet mapping and high-resolution Earth imaging, there is little doubt this trend will accelerate as private- and public-sector adopters of the technology realize its full potential.
