Geospatial Technologies May See Continued Future Development

Geospatial Technologies May See Continued Future DevelopmentMost of the public is familiar with technologies that make use of location data, such as navigation and social media apps that interface with global positioning systems. However, most people aren’t aware of geographic information systems (GIS). Delivering levels of rich data along with location information, GIS solutions bring together many categories of facts, statistics and patterns as needed by their users. With their use growing in the public sector, as well as burgeoning possibilities for their benefits in the private sector, professionals who seek further education in the field now could see better employment opportunities in the future.

The Development of GIS Technologies

GIS should not be mistaken for mere computer mapping methods. In fact, some of the origins of geospatial technologies lie in the development of the Canada Geographic Information System (CGIS) during the 1960s. Wikipedia elaborates on this project, developed by the country’s Department of Forestry and Rural Development. The first version of CGIS allowed users access to data concerning agricultural use, soils, land use, animal life, recreation and forestry mapped specifically by location.

GIS applications have advanced considerably in the last 50 years. National Geographic Magazine details how this information is currently utilized for scientific, sociological, governmental and other purposes. Since data collection is such an important part, professionals who craft and shape them may sometimes need to make crucial decisions about what information is to be gathered. For instance, systems tooled for environmental analysis may combine data on soil and water quality, vegetation and air pollutants mapped along with the locations of factory sites. Average yearly temperatures and their changes over time could be measured with glacier thickness at polar sites.

Greater demand for GIS experts is anticipated to continue in several fields, including telecommunications, transportation public utilities, education and some private-sector industries. That’s why the United States Department of Labor reported on the geospatial technology industry’s high growth rate in 2015. Also, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicted a 19 percent increase in employment for surveyors, photogrammetrists, and cartographers as well as for surveying and mapping technicians for the period between 2008 and 2018.

Advanced Education Prepares Learners for Future Occupations

To prepare future professionals for GIS occupations, many undergraduate and graduate programs are gearing up by offering new or expanded courses of study. For example, USC offers a GIS program that may interest you, with graduates earning a Master of Science in GIST. With increases in the utilization of these technologies as well as increasingly new methods and tools in the discipline, these schools strive to ensure that their curricula keep pace with the latest developments.

Anticipate Future Demand by Returning to School Now

With governmental and nonprofit projects continuing to rely on GIS solutions, a high demand for trained experts in the field is expected to remain. Scientific, political, agricultural and sociological uses will continue to increase. Additionally, private sector deployment of these systems will be sought to benefit businesses of all sizes. All this potential expansion of technologies in a variety of fields means that employment prospects look decidedly positive. Returning to obtain more education now may be your wisest move to secure your future.

5 Ways Plastic Surgeons Can Use Social Media

Posted by Bhavesh Joshi On Tuesday, November 29, 2016 0 comments

Many plastic surgeons have shied away from the use of social media because they feel as if they will not attract an audience through the popular platforms. But plastic surgeons can easily increase business through the use of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and even blogging, and the following are just a few ideas as to how.

1. Provide general information
The use of blogs can be a great asset for plastic surgeons. Many people have questions about plastic surgery, procedures, recovery time and a variety of other topics, and if a plastic surgeon starts a blog, they can use this as a platform to answer basic plastic surgery questions and establish themselves as an expert in their field. By providing valuable information to your audience through a blog, your audience will be more willing to choose you and your practice when it comes time to having plastic surgery. All provide them information to find the best doctors in Thailand.

If you have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can also link your blog articles out to your social media following, which is an easy way to increase traffic to your blog and increase your readership.

2. Show before and after pictures
The biggest way to attract an audience interested in plastic surgery is to provide before and after pictures of procedures. You can easily use social media as a way to show your audience what exactly can be achieved with different surgeries or procedures. Keep in mind that if you’re using pictures of your current or past patients, you’ll need to receive their consent if you will be showing their face or using their name. But a simple before and after picture posted to your social media accounts can be a great way to get more business.

3. Educate
Some people don’t realize that certain plastic surgeries or procedures can do more than make them look better, so you can use social media as a way to highlight the benefits of certain procedures. For example, let women know that breast reductions will not only help them find bras and clothes that fit, but that it can also help to eliminate back problems. The more information you can provide on the benefits of your procedures, the more interested your audience will become. You can let them know how to Search more specialists in Thailand.

You can also educate your audience on signs of poor plastic surgery jobs. It’s possible that your audience has already received a procedure from another doctor, and you can earn business from them if the job was botched. Show pictures of poor plastic surgery jobs done by other plastic surgeons and show how you can fix it. This can help you to increase business and earn a great reputation.

4. Provide solutions
Some people suffer from skin problems or issues without knowing how to treat them. You can use social media as a way to provide solutions to your audience. For example, you can let your audience know that botox injections in their armpits can help to control intense sweating or that a small laser procedure can help to eliminate spider veins. By providing simple solutions to common skincare problems, you will attract a larger audience that didn’t realize there was a way to fix their issues.

5. Provide customer service

Many patients will turn to social media as a customer service tactic, so it’s important that you understand that you should use social media as a way to provide customer service. Make sure that you are answering any inquiries that are asked through your social media channels, and always make sure that you’re responding to any comments that are left about your business, whether good or bad.

The recipient can watch this video at twice the normal speed for comedic effect.

As soon as the lure collides with a fish or reaches maximum depth, it starts ascending quickly. You have to hit as many fish with it before it resurfaces. You earn coins for completing missions and killing mobs. Along the way, you can unlock lure attachments - spikes, blades, arrows , saws, etc - to wreak havoc underwater. Plus, you get "Power Chips" that let the sea mine inflict more damage. As you rise up the ranks, Mobfish Hunter unlocks new levels and environments.
