 GIS Use and Maintenance
Barriers to GIS Implementation
Barriers Consequences
Institutional/Organizational Insufficient Planning
Weakness Unclear Objectives
Inadequately Designed Systems
Human Shortage of Qualified Personnel
Factors Insufficient Support
Technologically Isolated
Other Problems related with human dynamics

Local Lack of Vendor Representation

Environment Lack of Technical Support
Implementation Problems

Changing Limited Hardware/Software

Technology Incompatibility
Lack or Professional Training
Life long learner

Funding Insufficient funding

Arrangements Underestimated Project Costs
Unfinished Projects
Understanding and Overcoming the
 Geographic information system (GIS) Planning, implementation
and management can be a complex subject.
 It requires substantial background and skills, not only in GIS but in
Information Technology (IT), management, and project
 One of the hardest aspects is putting all the pieces together
identifying, organizing, planning, and managing all the
components of GIS implementation and management.
 For a GIS effort to be successful, need to identify and understand
the barriers in our organizational context and all of these
components must be carefully coordinated and integrated
instead of putting the ad-hoc effort.
