Compounding Collection Capacity

I recently had the distinct pleasure of addressing the U.S. Park Service, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Geospatial Training Workshop at the National Conservation Training Center outside Shepardstown, West Virginia. The talk was an overview of how far we’ve come as well as where we’re headed in terms of remote-sensing inputs and geospatial understanding.

Defining ‘First Principles’ of Geospatial Intelligence

In 2015, I developed and taught a free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), “Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) and the Geospatial Revolution,” to help broaden the discipline. When I began outlining the course, I asked several in the community, “what should be the focus of the MOOC?” The common reply was “teach the principles.”

Coastal-Erosion Modeling with LiDAR and UAS Technology

Coastal erosion is a persistent problem along the California coast that can drastically affect local communities. In the last 20 years alone, erosion has taken a particularly high toll in Pacifica, Calif. Through wind, rain and wave action, the scenic bluffs that line the ocean in this beachside town have continued to retreat to a point where local homes have been evacuated and condemned for demolition.

UAS Growth: Fast, Cheap, Out of Control?

Those of us who have been following infrastructure for more than a couple of decades are astonished, and unimpressed, by the seemingly sudden emergence of unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) as critical technology for infrastructure solutions of all sorts, particularly mapping and surveying.

Earth Observation Tracks Resources for Better Decisions

When commodity markets are fragile, it’s important for companies, banks and countries to understand how the supply and prices of natural resources are affected by local and global conditions.

Beware the False Narrative

Having spent most of my professional career in the Washington, D.C., area, I’ve learned some lessons about how the U.S. government works—or doesn’t. One frustrating phenomenon is the false narrative: when a story at odds with reality is developed about a particular situation.

Industry Overview: Pursuing Three Pillars of Practice

The Earth-observation (EO) market enjoys a strong diversity of civil and commercial applications. And use cases will continue to increase, as the capacity for satellite-based observations is projected to explode this coming decade, with the launch of 80 percent more satellites by 2024 than were launched the prior decade (according to Euroconsult).
