NGA @ GEOINT 2015 | National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

NGA director challenges partners to join in ‘new power’ of GEOINT
 

Robert Cardillo, director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, formalized his agency’s changing approach to geospatial intelligence by issuing a new corporate strategy and challenging a diverse audience of government, industry, academic and international partners at the 2015 GEOINT Symposium to join NGA in what he views as a necessary shift from “old power” to new.
 
Cardillo likened “old power” intelligence to a currency that was tightly held and jealously guarded by a few. Citing a recent Harvard Business Review article by Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms, he described it as “closed, inaccessible and leader driven,” in his June 23 keynote remarks at the USGIF-sponsored event in Washington, D.C. The GEOINT Symposium is considered the preeminent gathering of GEOINT professionals each year. Read more...


 
NGA and DigitalGlobe open source toolkit
to harness the power of collaborative mapping
 
SPRINGFIELD, Va. — The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and DigitalGlobe have partnered to release an open source software toolkit designed to harness the power of crowdsourced mapping for Geospatial Big Data Analytics. The open source project Hootenanny provides a scalable processing engine and interactive editing interface to enable rapid conflation of map features generated from satellite imagery, UAVs, and mobile devices.

In less than a decade crowdsourced mapping communities like OpenStreetMap™ have attracted over 2.5 million volunteers who have digitized more than 130 million buildings and 1.3 million miles of roads. Countless other organizations and individuals are using satellite imagery and other methods to capture the geometry and metadata of roads, buildings, and points of interest. To create high quality maps and enable analytic functions like routing, suitability analysis, or predictive modeling it is important to unify multiple sources to create the best available database.
