Thanks to popular GIS websites such as Microsoft Virtual Earth, Google Maps and television, GIS technology is widely accepted by millions of people. As more people reallize the advantages of GIS more of them expect GIS functionality within Business Information Systems. This is a reallistic expectation because almost all business oriented databases have geograhic data elements that can be
rendered upon maps and applied to GIS. The benefit is, by using these geographic data elements to visualize data upon maps in colorful multi-dimensional styles, organizations are able to find information in their data that could not be found any other way.  For example, petroleum companies find profitable oil wells that were once lost in seas of tabular data because they suddenly stand out when symbolized with other geographic features on maps. Trucking company executives instantly spot where their trucks drive most and then make better decisions on multi-million dollar real estate purchases.  Now considering advantages such as these can be reallized by other industries as well, spatial enablement of the Business Information System is a smart and growing trend. Brian Johnston specializes in helping businesses spatially enable Business Information Systems with ESRI, Oracle, IBM and Microsoft tools.
