When Space, Time, and Location Are Critical: A GEOINT Mission
March 6, 2018 at 6:30p (2 Hours)
Location: International Spy Museum, Washington, DC
Geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) is a building block of our national security used to rapidly provide insights into the scope and range of human activity, explore natural features across physical terrain, accurately locate significant events and activities, and precisely measure details above, on, and underneath the Earth’s surface. Keith Masback, CEO of the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) and a former senior executive on both the Army Staff in the Pentagon and with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, will lead this overview of GEOINT for the lay person.
Participants will learn basic techniques for extracting information from images, then using real-world problems and data, they will test their own geospatial intelligence skills to complete a national security mission involving the time-sensitive movement of people through a dangerous physical environment. Can you complete the mission in time? Come discover how GEOINT is transforming how we engage with our world.
