Sharing Geospatial Intelligence and Services

  1. 1. 1 Approved for Public Release 10-328 Sharing Geospatial Intelligence and Services David L. Bottom Director ISP Core Services Office David.L.Bottom@nga.mil 301-227-0992 Approved for Public Release 10-328
  2. 2. 2 Approved for Public Release 10-328 • Discuss status of Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) sharing across the community – Opportunities and challenges of moving from hardcopy to electronic • Explore applicability of Cloud Computing – Mitigate the challenges and maximize the opportunities? • This is not an Acquisition – No procurement strategy is in place at this time Purpose
  3. 3. 3 Approved for Public Release 10-328 What is GEOINT?  Includes imagery, imagery intelligence, and geospatial information  Everything you can see or know about the earth  Describes, assesses, and visually depicts features and geographically- referenced activities on the Earth
  4. 4. 4 Approved for Public Release 10-328 GEOINT is composed of information layers, which answer such questions as…  Where am I?  Where are the natural and man-made structures? How do I navigate them?  What does the area look like now? What might it look like after an event?  What do we need to prepare for?  Where are the friendlies? The enemies? When might they move? What does this mean? What is the impact?
