Is 2016 the year of location?

I came across an interesting post on The Next Web the other day. It asks if 2016 is the year of location. The premise of this blog is all about that – the fact that everything we do is tied to a location. Everything is spatial.

I have believed for quite a while now that as GIS grows more and more, and becomes more integrated into every domain, that the role of the GIS professional will shift drastically. The “pure” GIS professional will be enterprise/programming focussed, supporting the domain GIS users who aren’t necessarily trained GIS users, but merely use GIS as part of their toolset.
