Apart from the army, the navy and air force use maps for their movement planning and monitoring both in time of peace and war. Today GIS has become an important technology for the Defence and Security establishments worldwide solely due to its unique capability of bringing forth the area of interest as it is on ground and the power it gives to the military commanders in tackling any crisis.

India is physically situated in a difficult position, juxtaposed as it is between two nuclear neighbours with whom border issues remain to be resolved, along with the threat of terrorism and insurgencies on one hand, and Naxal Maoism in her hinterland on the other. All this requires India's Security Forces to be exceedingly nimble on its feet so that they can move to any crisis location at a very short notice. This movement of armoured cavalcade is dependent upon the terrain conditions and the latest position of the problem location. It is here that GIS stands out as the only contender that can accurately and expeditiously help in information dissemination between different command units as well as help in planning military move.
