In the next articles you will see concrete examples of projects carried out through the use of GIS technologies.
As you will see, GIS is used in very different areas. We’re going to show just a few examples of the countless possibilities. Continue to imagine the endless possibilities that the GIS offers!

Agriculture GIS Applications

  • Precision Farming – Harvesting more bushels per acre while spending less on fertilizer using precision farming and software. (How to win the farm using GIS)

Astronomy/Planetary GIS Applications

  • Mars Terrain – Going for a spin on the rugged terrain of Mars using data captured by the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) instrument on the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS). (Mars Terrain)

Architecture GIS Applications

  • Integration of GIS and BIM – Operating a facility with BIM (building information modeling) because of its ability to analyze information and integrate data from different systems.

Aviation GIS Applications

  • Flight Simulator – Becoming a pilot in the cockpit with three-dimensional perspective views of an area by combined with elevation and imagery. (Online Flight Simulator)

Consumer Science and Behavior GIS Applications

  • Data Analytics – Analyzing location-based information to reveal relationship between individuals, families, and communities, and the environment in which they live.

Climate Change GIS Applications

  • NASA Earth Observatory – Exploring the causes and effects of climate change of our atmosphere, oceans, land and life through the use of satellite data. (NASA Earth Observatory)

Disaster GIS Applications

  • Earthquake Prediction – Obtaining earthquake signatures measuring subduction events with GRACE satellite and the geoid. (Earthquake Prediction)

Education GIS Applications
