Starting the geospatial intelligence blog


What does geospatial intelligence mean?

For me, geospatial intelligence means monitoring human activities by getting insights from location based informations.

In the current decade using open source intelligence is one of the most important intelligence disciplines.

„I do not know what I do not know!?!“

Let us take a look back …

Wikipedia started as an open collaboration project in 2001.

The Open Streetmap project was created by Steve Coast in 2004.

Since 2005 a crowdsourced geographical database named GeoNames was founded.

2020 I just started this blog based on geospatial intelligence. Stay tuned.
