According to the report, an increased use of digital maps for land resources is one of the major factors driving the market. Many agencies provide online GIS platforms that provide information for land resources planning, which includes potential agricultural development and strategic prioritization of commodities in line with national food security programs and climate change adaptations.

A high initial investment is required to create a centralized database to contain large volumes of GIS data and lack of trained human resources makes the management of the storage of such large volumes of data difficult.
