GeoInt is quickly becoming part of every day operations in both defence and the intelligence world. Every piece of data, every image and every bit of intelligence has spatial coordinates and can be put on a map. With information overload, and the need to quickly deliver data and analysis to users on the ground, GeoInt has to grow its capability, scope and interoperability. Most defence and national security agencies around the world are currently working on integrating all parts of their GIS data infrastructure and intelligence into one easily accessible and interoperable picture, with geo information at the core of every data set, situational awareness concept or in-theatre operational picture.

Addressing the big GeoInt challenges:

Delivering users online on demand information and analysis is another top priority for the allied forces around the world. Maps to apps is no longer a fancy concept, but a reality in many geo organisations in defence and intelligence. From operations in Lybia to the London 2012 Olympic planning committee, everyone in geospatial intelligence is working on strategies and solutions for effective information dissemination and sharing

Cloud computing, human geography and broadened data analysis are going to change the way geospatial intelligence works forever. No longer will geo be department responsible for producing maps and giving them to users upon request. GeoInt is truly becoming the core of every decision in-theatre, in anti-terrorist operations and in day-to-day intelligence work.

About DGI:

Defence Geospatial Intelligence (DGI) is Europe's largest and most international annual gathering dedicated to the discussion of the major challenges of the use of geospatial intelligence in defence, intelligence and national security operations.

DGI brings together heads of geospatial intelligence, remote sensing, GIS data & mapping, satellite imagery and analysis within the the military, governmental, and intelligence sectors. It attracts professionals who are responsible for using, and integrating, geo based capabilities in their operations and organisations. DGI provides a unique forum for the use of intelligence in defence and national security where the most senior member of the GeoInt community debate the development of geospatial intelligence capabilities across the globe.

Addressing the use of geospatial information in scenarios such as international conflicts, defence operations, C4ISR, humanitarian disasters, crime, national security, border control, arms treaty monitoring and global climate change, the fundamental objective of DGI is to help organisations understand how to build the necessary infrastructure and architecture to take advantage of geospatial intelligence capabilities.
