I'm looking to expand into a different career from engineering and energy,
and one of the options I've been looking at was GIS (Geographical Information Systems).

The standard software in the field is called ArcGIS,
and it's basically a combination of Google Maps and PhotoShop. 

ArcGIS is used to create custom maps, which brings me to this:

Someone took the time, to make a route guide, for the Cumber's and Toltec Railroad, along with a map. 

I see a lot of potential with something like this, to be used as a powerful modeling tool.

What do you guys think?
