Drones and New Applications for Precision Agriculture

Basic crop scouting from drones provides a major improvement over how field surveys previously were done, and it’s the primary driver for drone-technology adoption. Crop scouts traditionally were employed to walk farm fields to monitor crop condition. This is hot, time-consuming work, and crop scouts have difficulty visiting even a small percentage of a whole field, easily missing problem areas.

What Makes GEOINT, GEOINT?

Teaching in the geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) field provides the opportunity for discussion and debate regarding the elements of this discipline. In the course of discussions with students, educators and those in the profession, the question as to how GEOINT is different from other geospatial analytic activities is occasionally raised. It’s an important question to answer,

Defense Watch: Assessing the Role of Geospatial Intelligence in a Period of Rapid Climate Change

By Chris Crosiar, Office of Basic and Applied Research, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (www.nga.mil), Springfield, Va. In my experience as a research and development scientist at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, I recall a time when the mention of climate change was so taboo, analysts could only reference “an environmental anomaly.” Times have changed. During the last
