I have always had a great deal of time for Sanjay Kumar and his team behind the excellent Asian GIS magazine, GIS Development, and was very happy to contribute an article for their embedded GIS issue.
I don’t think GIS Development and the geospatial activities taking place in Asia, and in India and the Middle East in particular, get enough exposure in the West. Although there are many governmental restrictions in these regions, this is not always the case, and countries like the UAE are moving ahead very quickly.
But what we really need to wake up to is the quality of the technology and the GI professionals coming out of India, I would really suggest you take some time to look at the GIS Development website, its a great resource.
One reply on “GIS Developments from Asia”
As a developer, I have a few ideas where GIS and GPS would be very handy. Hopefully I can share those thoughts over here. 🙂
