In a recent study, it is estimated that this year (2020) 675,000 geospatial professionals will make up the employment across the US and 25% of them will hold the title (Geographic Information Systems) GIS Analyst. 168,000+ GIS Analysts will be faced with the same challenge and that is – that the amount of data being collected is skyrocketing and this puts extraordinary pressure on the GIS Analysts to make informed recommendations with all the appropriate considerations available to them. Their role requires them to prepare reports, perform the research, and most importantly provide professional opinions driven by data analytics.
GIS Analysts analyze spatial data through geospatial mapping software and design additional maps with geographic data and other available data sets. The role can be incredibly challenging with the enormous amount of data being collected that changes landscapes entirely. They are also more than “map makers” and it’s common that they have proficiency in remote sensing, CAD, programming and database management as well as a complimentary expertise in the industry they are supporting such as public safety, emergency management, transportation, logistics, environmental, and more.
GIS Visualization Software for Enahnced Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting
In our evolving world of technology, GIS Analysts need to quickly analyze the vast amounts of data sources organizations are adopting to have deeper insights into how their business or community operates to create increased safety in their communities and increased efficiency across their departments. They need a reliable GIS visualization software to bring all this disparate data into a common operational picture to make faster recommendations.
GIS Analysts use Live Earth as a GIS data management solution to engage with data from a new perspective with greater insight.

What are some of the benefits of Live Earth?
- It is easy to use – you do not need to go to a multi-week training class to use the platform
- There is no data loss or heavy lift to swap over – you can still use your existing [ESRI] data layers in the platform
- It offers immediate increased value – we help you make your data layers more relevant by adding contextual surrounding data that you may not have access to currently
