students future - life with GIS

The director of education for international GIS technology firm, ESRI, Michael Gould, known for many GIS students was lately interviewed about the GIS future.

The main aspect of all this is that the future of GIS is our life with GIS.

"Students will find it difficult to avoid GIS in the near future: it will be in their laptops, cars, and phones. A simple application on a cell phone which finds the correct bus that is nearest and going to the correct place, is actually driven by complex GIS on the server side. In the future the application will be smaller, faster, and more functional, and the server will be faster and more powerful.
GIS from a monolythic system is turning into a interconnected collection of models".
M. Gould
