DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Mobile Map Market 2017-2021" report to their offering.

The global mobile maps market to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% during the period 2017-2021.

The use of logistics and supply chain management 3D platforms and management software increases efficiency and minimizes cost. 3D visualization provides clarity of information about routes, warehouse utilization, and throughput. Software management provides information about transportation. Consumers tend to modify the transport route as well as the stock configuration until the performance is optimized.

According to the report, GPS-enabled smartphones have gained widespread visibility in the last few years. While mobile devices were used as communication devices in recent years, the increasing functionalities and processing capabilities of smartphones and tablets allow present-day users to use their mobile devices to obtain real-time directions to nearby locations, weather forecasts, and traffic updates. All these GPS-based applications and devices are built on digital maps, which provide location information to end-users. Hence, smartphone manufacturers are developing partnerships with digital map providers to provide in-built digital maps in their devices. Mobile maps are being used extensively in various sectors, such as healthcare, transportation and logistics, oil and gas, defence, military, and others.

Further, the report states that some countries assume that digital maps in high-security zones may endanger national security, as they are exposed to the areas of terrorist attack. Hence, governments in many countries do not allow vendors to provide digital maps of areas that have high-security installations. In addition, some nations have compelled map providers to erase digital images of sensitive areas such as nuclear weapon sites, military bases, and border regions as well as the residences and offices of prominent individuals. For instance, the Chinese government does not allow many digital map content providers to conduct aerial surveys in China.
