GEOINT Basic Doctrine Publication 1.0

Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Basic Doctrine, Publication 1.0, (hereinafter referred to as Pub 1.0) provides decision makers and intelligence producers a basis for understanding GEOINT to help plan and execute their assigned missions. This document also serves as a common frame of reference for the GEOINT Enterprise Community. As the highest level of doctrine for GEOINT, NSG Pub 1.0 is written at an unclassified level and in a manner that can be readily understood by consumers (non-producers) and new producers of GEOINT. Pub 1.0 also complements the doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures and guidance outlined in Joint Publication 2-03, Geospatial Intelligence Support to Joint Operations.
