Georgia, the country in the Caucasus, has a population of some 5 million. It is a partly mountainous country. In 2013 a World Bank ICR document on Georgia (ref. 1417) said that
“The market for sophisticated information management systems (e.g., GIS-based Road Asset Management System, RAMS) may be too small in a country which is small and in a transition stage”
In 2003 ICIMOD published a document on an application of GIS in Nepal (ref. 466). Nepal is a partly mountainous country and has a population of some 27 million persons.
In 2013 the National Land Commission of Bhutan organised a Bhutan Geographic Information System User Conference (see here). Bhutan is a mountainous country with a population of around 0.7 million.
Nepal and Bhutan are comparatively poor countries, and also in a transition stage. I would argue that these days GIS and RAMS are not “sophisticated” techniques, and that Georgia is not really too small or too inappropriate a country for their use.
