In fact, NGA will establish a geospatial technology lab of their own within T-REX, directly next to Harris-Stowe’s new GeoHornet Lab. Dr. Higgs has taught geography and geographic subjects at Washington University, St. Louis University, and other St. Louis colleges and universities for over 20 years. The lab is emerging as a global center for location-based science and technology advancements. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the addition of Harris-Stowe programming to our center,” said Mark Tatgenhorst, Geospatial Program Director at T-REX.

Getting insights from political violence and protests around the world

In this walkthrough we used one of the most widely used analysis OSINT source named ACLED. With the help of spatial binning we easily recognized historical events between 2000 and 2020 without being an intelligence expert. We have implemented most of the workflows into a GEOINT Python module, mainly to give non-spatial experts a better understanding of the implementation details.

The Covid-19 pandemic added fuel to the appreciation of the value of location data in the public sector. It is a subject on which many are eager to improve their understanding, identify opportunities and pitfalls in making more of the location data held by themselves and third parties. We need to explore how to take the data into the realm of intelligence, providing organisations with fresh insights for their planning and operations.

AT&T is taking action Climate Resilience Project, using spatial data analysis and location information on how stronger storms can affect infrastructure, such as cell towers and the ability of telecommunications to serve customers. “Spatial analysis is this way of going beyond what we see visually,” explains Lauren Bennett, head of spatial analysis and data science at Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Esri. Laboratory company asset data and climate data can cover volumes of different information in location, display and analysis. Layered on the map is an analysis of climate change data commissioned by AT&T to Argonne. Argonne and AT&T co-created the Climate Change Analysis Tool to predict the frequency, extent, and location of floods, high-speed winds, fires, and droughts.

Spies in Australia : How do they work across the nation?

Source: theage.com.au

There was another important decision to be made, and it would forever change the make-up of Australian spies. The review recommended that the Office of National Assessments (ONA) be turned into the Office of National Intelligence (ONI), with an augmented ability to supervise the nation’s other spy agencies. Whereas before the ONA primarily assessed foreign intelligence, its successor deals with intelligence relating to foreign as well as domestic threats. The agency is headed by Mike Burgess, one of a new breed of national security leader appointed by the Morrison government.

Intermap Wins Contract Under OTA from National Geospatial – Intelligence Agency (NGA)

Source: prnewswire.com

Geospatial Analysts use NGA foundation data for global mapping programs and provide the context for GEOINT analysis. The planned prototype will dramatically improve the quality and currency of feature and elevation data provided to NGA’s broad user community and it will speed up dissemination to users. Intermap will help NGA change the way they create foundation data, managed and disseminated. This should pave the way to provide NGA and its user community with current foundation data faster than ever.
