Domain Applications

The Domain Applications knowledge area focuses on the linkages between the foundational GIS&T competencies found in other components of the Body of Knowledge and their implementation across a wide range of application areas, highlighting their scope and depth and providing evaluation of their impacts. 

More than 30 thematic topics have already been identified for this Knowledge Area, and many of these are already under development. Listed alphabetically below, this number is anticipated to grow over time as existing themes expand and new application areas are identified.
