The Future of Geospatial Imagery Collection Analysis Exploitation and Exchange

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.
