This paper examines some of the recent trends in GIS technology and their impact on applications. It has examined the development of desktop GIS and their role in a corporate information system policy. For the future the most significant areas of technical development are likely to be: price/performance improvement; increases in processing power per user; larger quantities of data being used in applications; more complex applications; wider use of GUIs; more networked computers; greater intra- and inter-corporation co-operation; more distributed data and processing. -from Authors
