GIS technology role and place in russian economy digitalization

Main Article Content

Natalia I. Lyakhova


The development and active use of information and communication technologies launched the digitalization process, which radically changes the ways of communication and communication technologies. Experts compare the depth and scale of the ongoing changes with the processes of the economy industrialization during the late 19th - early 20th centuries. The article presents the study results of geoformation technology development trends within the framework of the economy digitalization. The authors considered the stages of geographic information system development in the world and in Russia. To meet the study’s aim, they carried out the analysis of GIS technology implementation and use in various sectors of the Russian economy. Plus, the analysis and synthesis, monographic, comparative analysis are taken into account. Based on the results obtained, it can be inferred that for the most part international indicators and indices assess the technical aspect of the digital economy formation and development, which is not entirely correct, given the fact that we cope with a tough complex phenomenon. It is associated with the process of social-economic institutions of society informatization, and the process of globalization leads to their transformation at the macro level. The assessment of digital technology implementation level in the country economy at the international level is not made according to individual indicators, which are considered in this study. Complex indicators are used for this, allowing, on the one hand, cover a number of indicators and give an overall assessment, but on the other hand, they do not take into account and level out the peculiarities and specifics of individual countries and types of activity development.
