GIS professionals make the geographic information accessible to scientists, planners, decision makers, managers and to general public. Knowledge of geo-informatics is becoming a driving force behind the overall socio-economic development of the nation. There is a wide gap in demand and supply of GIS professionals. India is the one of the most preferred outsourcing destination for GIS related work in the world.
