Abstract

Decision and policy making at the national and provincial requires a holistic use of information from a variety of sources. In the developed economies, the use of geographic information systems (GIS) has become critical in resource planning and economic development in a multitude of sectors across the public and corporate domains. Unfortunately, the diffusion of GIS in the developing countries is hampered by the lack of technical awareness, management, and political considerations compounded by the lack of accurate spatial and demographic data. This talk will cover an insight into the potential impact of the use of GIS in developing economies with case studies in a variety of sectors including health, environment, infrastructure development and others. An analysis of the diffusion of GIS in Pakistan’s perspective will be discussed by highlighting key areas for technical, administrative and policy measures that can serve as a way forward for an optimum planning and monitoring of resources and the economic progress of the country.
