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). On top of

A Pivot Point for Space Accessibility

Space often is viewed as a high-tech futuristic dream available only to the world’s top-notch scientists. Online satellite maps, TV and GPS have snuck into common usage, but with the controlling powers being large companies or institutions. But we’re now at a tipping point for making recent and tasked satellite imagery accessible to everyone, and

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,
