GIS Programming: Languages breakdown. A while back, I wrote a post on Learning GIS Programming, giving an overview of the different programming languages being used in GIS.

GIS Programming: Languages breakdown

A follow-up post with more detailed information on the different programming languages has languished at the bottom of my To-Do list for a while now. Luckily for me, I found the following post from Atle on his personal website that covers pretty much everything that I wished to write about in the first place. I contacted Atle and he was graciously to let us re-post his original article on Geoawesomeness. Thank you Atle Info: The following post was written by Atle Frenvik Sveen on his personal website and has been re-posted under Creative Commons.

Depending on what the position requires, one would be expected to have expertise in SQL, python, C++, Java or Javascript, Flex and PHP (just to name a few). Knowledge and competence in programming is a essential skill set and a critical requirement for most Geospatial job opportunities these days. A vast majority of job openings in the Geospatial industry require some expertise in programming, application development and software management. As Geospatial professionals/graduates/students, some of us overlook the importance of programming in our careers.

Some of us believe that our spatial skill sets are niche enough to compensate for the lack of our programming expertise. Mbostock/topojson. #Code : La révolution Programmée.
