Overview: The world is awash in geospatial data, just as the development and adoption of GEOINT AI and ML solutions are becoming reality. In order to maximize potential of such advancements, organizations must undertake a systematic approach to geospatial data management and governance. Last October, NGA publicly published an agency data strategy, as a means of closing the gap between current and future GEOINT capabilities, focused on four areas: making data easily accessible, improving data reusability, improving cross-domain efficiencies, and enabling next-generation GEOINT.  Join this session to learn about how government and industry organizations are turning data strategies into operational realities.
