Study evaluates public servants’ remote sensing/GIS adoption issues and examines the relationship between individual public servants’ remote sensing/GIS awareness/adoption and utilization issues.

Majority of the public servants have interest in remote sensing/GIS; they are more aware of the benfits than the costs of remote sensing/GIS; time, finance, and lack of permission from the place of work are the three top constraints in building their remote sensing/GIS knowledge; top on the list of problems affecting respondents’ use of GIS/Remote Sensing applications is financial problems, followed by power supply (electricity) problem, lack of knowledge about GIS/Remote Sensing applications, lack of incentives/motivation, and technical nature of the applications.
