Geospatial intelligence has never been more important to enabling and enhancing a wide range of national and international missions as it is today. As the sources of geospatial data are increasing, expect there to be a decrease in the concern over access and availability of data over the next five to ten years. In terms of data security, future innovations within the industry to secure the influx of data are anticipated.
GIS is making a crucial difference to National Security in different environments, which ones do you think are being impacted most by the application of GIS?
From tackling the terrorist threat, to the refugee crisis, to the management of natural resources, and even planning for major sporting events like the Olympics, you’ll find GEOINT at the forefront.
The applications for GIS reach far and wide. These results show us that beyond global security, GIS also has an important role to play in mapping natural disasters and planning and managing natural resources. This is particularly important in regard to increased water shortages in the face of rapid population growth worldwide.
