Geographic Information Systems Expert Witnesses
Geographic Information Systems expert witness candidates typically have professional experience in spatial data, software engineering, location-based services, and/or possess specialized knowledge in GPS or GIS. GIS experts may be a member of an industry organization such as the Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA), the World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC), or the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS). While many experts have GIS expertise, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby jurors can understand the technology and evidence.
A geographic information system (GIS) incorporates geographical features (spatial data) with other data to create and analyze maps. In addition to straight-forward computer cartography, geographic information systems can be used in many areas such as engineering, planning, management, transport and logistics, insurance, telecommunications, and business.
Matters requiring geographic information systems expert witness work often involve patent infringement or trade secret litigation. Expert witness services by a GIS technology expert could include an expert report, expert opinion, depositions, and/or trial testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may require an expert with prior expert testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a geographic information system industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
