Defence Geospatial Intelligence (DGI) is Europe's largest annual gathering dedicated to high-level discussion addressing the major challenges of the defence and government geospatial intelligence community. DGI brings together heads of Geospatial Intelligence, Remote Sensing, GIS Mapping, Satellite Imagery and Analysis within the Military, Governmental and National Security sectors. DGI provides a unique forum to discuss and debate the development of geospatial intelligence capabilities across the globe.Addressing the use of geospatial information in scenarios such as international conflicts, humanitarian disasters, crime, national security, border control, arms treaty monitoring and global climate change, a fundamental objective of DGI is to help organisations understand how to build the necessary infrastructure and architecture to take advantage of geospatial intelligence capabilities. As GIS technologies and use expand into all areas of the defence operations, so will DGI 2011. This year we are planning to include the following conference tracks in the agenda, focusing on:
Strategies for developing and implementing GIS use in your organisation
Case studies of GIS use in-theatre and in operations (defence and national security focus)
GIS use in command and control â€“ Strategies for C4ISR case studies of effective GIS integration.
Effective integration of GIS tools and solutions into your existing IT infrastructure
The event is expanding into the areas of Command and Control as well as into the IT architecture implementation challenges. This expansion is driven by the need of your colleagues from C4ISR and IT architecture teams to understand and implement the latest and most effective geospatial strategies in their parts of the organisation. Make sure that your Command & Control, as well as your IT colleagues join DGI 2011 to hear the case studies, find new ideas and learn about the new solutions designed specifically for the needs of their organisations.
