Dear Reader,

It is our absolute pleasure to welcome you to the first edition of the GIS today magazine, an initiative by GIS Vision India. GIS today is an e-magazine dedicated to covering most innovative, authentic and cutting edge technology in the field of GIS and remote sensing. GIS today aims towards covering latest developments, applications and future prospects of the technology. The e-magazine intends to establish a global outreach for students, academicians and industrialists through dissemination of current GIS research. The theme of the e-magazine is to keep readers abreast of different aspects of GIS that are incessantly being developed so as to improve assessment and application of technology. The world has woken up to the utility of GIS based mapping and communication and its relevance have been established across numerous fields.

The magazine will feature articles from esteemed personalities both from academia and industry from time to time while also welcoming articles of relevance from anyone and everyone. We welcome you to the world of GIS through the lens of GIS today and encourage you to join our team for publishing your work. Your work published through GIS today will reach out to the global GiS community and help in establishing your presence in the field.

The infectious Corona virus disease outbreak has become global threat requiring a collective response. The outbreak of Coronavirus disease has caused a largely disruptive impact on the general society, ecology, culture and other areas. As the spread of virus is likely to continue disrupting because of high transportation connectivity, globalization and economic interconnectedness, it has been really difficult to contain and mitigate the importation risks once the disease starts to spread in multiple locations.

What is data?

Data is any information such as numbers, words, measurements, observations or just a description of things stored in a digital format which can then be used as a base for performing analyses and decision making. Data can be qualitative and quantitative, where qualitative data is descriptive information and quantitative data is numerical information.

Shapefiles and Geopackages

Shapefiles are vector data storage models for storing feature classes composed of points, lines and polygons, but never a mixture. It stores information of the location, shape and attributes of geographical features. Each item in a shapefile has attributes that describe it composed of rows, called records and columns called fields and can also store multipart features, in which a single feature includes multiple objects which includes-

Geospatial Analyst asses a set of data from the geographical record including aerial photographs, GIS data, cartographic records, soil analysis and preparing maps and GIS is presenting many more opportunities in jobs, research works, projects to make an impact with the work they do.

Geographic Information System (GIS) are a set of computer tools that allows integrating with various types of data that are tied to spatial locations on the earth. It is a framework for gathering, managing and analyzing data. Give yourself a chance to work on industry projects which will lay the foundation of learning the tools and methods of application of sets of analysis and critical thinking capability for excellent work execution.  
Progressively, GIS has become more like any other IT tool, where technical
mastery is key to understanding and applying functionality in analysis. In particular,
geography provides directions and justification for given data to be collected and provides
that explanation to clients on how data could benefit given problems with geographic theory.
A key advantage for geographers who use GIS is they can better understand limitation in data
and tools in addressing given problems.

Location matters in every business sectors and so do data. It is data that connects the companies with their clients. Along with other technological experts, advisors and data miners, GIS specialists in companies like google, amazon , Facebook  has responsibilities of a Marketing intelligence. Collection of database such as income information, population, logistics, checking of sales performances, management, competitor survey, order locations and managing sales are some of the responsibilities. supply chain.

From balloon imaging to automated drone imaging, aerial imaging has had a lot of advancement. During its initiation, aerial imagery was primarily used to track wartime activities and not welcomed as people looked on to aerial imaging as an invasion in their privacy. However, in due course of time people began to realize that there is better to it than bad. Imagery technology has now become an essential part of various industries such as information and communication technology, defence, civil engineering, forestry, agriculture and many more. Advances in satellite imagery and technology have caused a huge evolution. The abilities of geospatial data collection and problem-solving have exploded since the introduction of digital mapping as a discipline.

With business becoming more innovative, information technology is also continually growing. Every bit of information gathered or collected from the cutting-edge and forefront technologies today is being substantial for manipulating, monitoring, analyzing and predicting discrete, spatial and non-spatial data. The present industrial world and different organizations namely environmental, agricultural, business, and lot more sectors are all directly  or indirectly dependent on geographical data such as geospatial data, georeferenced  data or geodata. The information technology is dominating the industrial world today.
