Chairman Message

Geospatial Information Technology
I mentioned the recent update to the LSD’s Areas of Specialisation last month. In the next few months, I will talk about a few new or greatly altered areas of specialisation in more detail. This month, I discuss geospatial information technology or its trendier acronym, GIT. The rationale behind the updates in this area is to cover a broader range of emerging technologies that are closely-related to GIS such as the internet of things (IoT), GeoAI, big data analytics, etc, as well as to highlight its importance in smart city applications. So the LSD proposes revising the areas of competency under GIT (formerly GIS)
