Follow us on LinkedIn - Digital maps are a set of geographic information or features in a digital format that can be conveniently viewed on a computer, printed on paper, or used for analysis. These maps are commonly used in location-based services to assist users in finding and providing details about a specific location. Digital maps are primarily offered in raster and vector database sets. While raster datasets include readable pictures of conventional map products for use in other documents, vector datasets can be easily personalized to view desired features. The evolution of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology has played an instrumental role in the development of digital mapping technology. Growth in the market for digital maps is expected to be driven by robust demand for navigation systems in cars, aircraft and helicopters. In the communications industry, growing popularity of location based services and spiraling sales of smartphones and tablet phones are encouraging widespread adoption of consumer mapping applications. Growing importance of geospatial technology in fields such as architecture, real estate, engineering, land surveying, forestry, mining, and archaeology, is also forecast to spur growth in the market in the coming years.
