What is the current “State of GEOINT” and what waits on the horizon? The answers are essential for professional agility in an era of accelerated GEOINT innovation. USGIF presents the 2015 State of GEOINT Report to help answer these questions and support GEOINT Community interests and professional requirements.

This inaugural report began with a diverse gathering of more than 50 geospatial intelligence practitioners Oct. 7, 2014, at the Hyatt Dulles in Herndon, Va. Participants were from academia, U.S. government, and large and small businesses. USGIF asked attendees to continue the dialogue by writing short essays to capture the essence of their discussions, forming the basis of the State of GEOINT report.
