Most of the current publications on geographic information systems (GIS) focus on its mechanics, technology, and project-specific applications. This much-needed book, however, introduces the reader to GIS implementation from a management and organizational perspective. GIS is becoming increasingly popular and is evolving from a mapping tool used for support functions to a technology capable of redesigning land administration. In other sectors, information technology has had a dramatic effect on operations. This book examines those cases, and applies them to GIS paradigm, stressing that GIS technology itself does not cause improvements in operational efficiency and effectiveness, but enables changes that can facilitate these improvements. The bulk of the book guides the reader through the necessary frameworks and techniques needed to plan, design, and implement GIS as a technological infrastructure within an organization. Managing Geographic Information System Projects, is suitable for both students and professionals who want to know how to successfully implement GIS technology in organizations.
