Where should a retail business occur or locate within a region? What would that trade area look like? Should a retail expansion occur and how would that affect sales of other nearby existing locations? Would a new retail location have the right demographic or socio-economic customer base to be profitable? These are important questions for retailers to consider. Within the evolving landscape of GIS, there is more geospatial data than ever before about the potential customer. In retail, the application of maps and mapping technology is growing to include commercial real estate, logistics, and marketing to name a few. There has been an increased momentum across commercial applications for geospatial technologies delivered in an easy to comprehend format for a variety of end users.
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. This Knowledge Area is new and therefore was not part of the first GIS&T Body of Knowledge, published in 2006.
