From St. Louis Public Radio:
The geospatial industry is growing at a rapid clip. Globally, it’s forecasted to become a more than $400 billion industry by 2020, according to the 2018 Geobuiz report. That’s what makes it an investment worth the time and energy of so many public and private officials, T-Rex Executive Director Patty Hagen said. It’s a long-term bet that the geospatial industry will spur not only technology advancements — but economic growth in the region, too.
