Public security is the function of governments which ensures the protection of citizens, persons in their territory, organizations, and institutions against threats to their well-being – and to the prosperity of their communities.
To meet the increasing challenges in the public security area, responsible public institutions and organisations can tap into their own intelligence to successfully address possible threats in advance. They optimise their internal structures, use synergies, and carefully balance costs and benefits of their measures.
Esri offers a statistics modernization program, which includes discounted access to and usage of ArcGIS technology, to national statistics agencies in a few select developing nations. Esri and UNFPA have committed to working together to create lesson plans, guides for best practices, data models, and other instructional materials to support national statistical offices in carrying out this crucial task. National statistics offices and Esri have worked together for a very long period to understand how to combine statistical and geographic data. In 2020, UNFPA developed the UNFPA COVID-19 Population Vulnerability dashboard using Esri technologies. Esri develops the most innovative solutions for digital transformation, the Internet of Things (IoT), and sophisticated analytics because of its ground-breaking dedication to geographic information technology.
Enterprises, meanwhile, have long used geospatial data to attract as many customers as possible, informing decisions such as where to open a new retail outlet. A lot of insurance applications for geospatial data produce more insights into the complex environment of climate change. There is a need for smart city solutions and an open community of geospatial interest.
Companies in these sectors rely on geographic and location data as a core function of their business. According to a recent study by Market Data Center, the global geospatial market will grow exponentially over the next eight years, from USD 64.72 billion in 2021 to 153.25 billion in 2030. These advancements continually benefit from the ancillary software technologies used to contextualize both satellite data and on-the-ground geospatial data. The progress being made in the capabilities of location-intelligence software provides companies with new ways to collect and analyze geospatial data. Especially in the insurance industry, where location-aware technology is used to query property conditions remotely.
The picture was far more detailed than commercial satellite pictures of the same site. In some quarters of the intelligence agencies, those lagging commercial capabilities have dampened enthusiasm for pushing forward with more private-sector contracts. The Senate version of this year’s Intelligence Authorization Act contains provisions to increase spending on commercial satellite programs. While the leadership of intelligence agencies is on board, there is still reluctance in some corners of the agencies to embrace commercial technology, according to congressional aides. Current and former congressional officials acknowledge the government still design and operate the most exquisite and innovative intelligence technology.
They awarded Jacobs a contract by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to provide mission-driven and data-centric solutions to support Geospatial-intelligence Enterprise Open Data Store (GEODS) services. The single-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) represents a $302 million contract value across a seven-year ordering period.
Under the agreement, Maxar will continue to provide engineering, software development and geospatial tradecraft to support NOME. “Maxar is excited to continue building upon the 10 years of development that have gone into NOME,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar’s Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations. “NOME is a highly effective mission enabler for the agency’s distributed workforce,” said James Griffith, Director of Source at NGA. NGA delivers world-class geospatial intelligence that provides a decisive advantage to policymakers, warfighters, intelligence professionals and first responders. It is the world leader in timely, relevant, accurate and actionable geospatial intelligence.
To achieve political goals, we have seen people and governments using political violence. It includes violence between governments, e.g. war as an intense armed conflict, and violence used against non-state actors, e.g. police brutality. A rebellion is a kind of politically motivated violence of non-state actors against a government. The storming of the United States Capitol was a riot act from non-state actors against the United States Congress.
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.
