Making sense of the jargon

There are an increasing number of acronyms, abbreviations and technical jargon items to get our heads around these days in the GIS industry, and I’m sure we used our fair share of them at the recent Technology Directions events!

A number of people attending the events indicated that they would find a glossary or similar resource useful to help them make sense of the rapidly changing GIS and IT terminology in common use today.

Rather than attempt to provide a comprehensive list here, I’ll recommend a page on the Esri-operated site that brings together links to a number of Esri and other GIS dictionary and glossary resources.


Between them, you’ll find a good definition of what you’re looking for.
