2017 State of GEOINT Content Exchange

USGIF sought broad participation from across government, industry, and academia, to include analysts, technologists, researchers, policy experts, academics, business developers, and others from the community.

The unclassified sessions were used to discuss and document current and future global geospatial intelligence trends and challenges. Teams self-selected to further develop topics of interest into short articles for inclusion in USGIF’s 2017 State of GEOINT report.

The State of GEOINT report will be published in early 2017 and be available for download on USGIF websites, distributed among the greater GEOINT Community, and mailed to 15,000 subscribers of USGIF’s trajectory magazine. Authors will be given attribution for their articles and participating discussants will be recognized in a contributor’s list.

USGIF is hosting two additional opportunities to contribute to the 2017 State of GEOINT Report. A 2017 State of GEOINT Content Exchange will take place Monday, Oct. 17 in Denver, Colo., and Tuesday, Oct. 18 in St. Louis, Mo.
