GIS helps in engineering and designing of construction projects
Construction end user is a leading adopter of geospatial technologies. GIS plays an important role in mapping and surveying of construction sites and serves as a complete platform for infrastructure development life cycle. Urban planning and infrastructure development require accurate mapping and surveying of the geographic area. GIS can accurately assess construction projects such as a dam, bridge, sewer, canal, industrial park, water management, and power plant. GIS tools are integrated with computer-aided design (CAD) tools for civil engineering applications. The increasing urbanization and growing population have created an urge for the use of GIS for systematic and synchronized planning of land and other resources. Some of the important applications of GIS in construction are land surveying, building information modeling (BIM), land cover mapping, property assessment, urban planning, and smart city planning.

The geographic information system (GIS) market was valued at USD 5.33 Billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 10.12 Billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 9.6% between 2017 and 2023.
