Geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) integrates imagery and geospatial data with other intelligence to create products critical to national intelligence, national security, and defense. GEOINT combines previously separated domains such as map production, GIS, and imagery analysis.
GEOINT Fuses Other Forms of Intelligence
Today, GIS fuses geospatial data with other forms of intelligence such as human (HUMINT), measurement and signature (MASINT), signal (SIGINT), open source (OSINT), and technical (TECHINT) intelligence. GIS serves as a powerful and unique platform to integrate and fuse all these types of intelligence into applications throughout an organization’s enterprise.
These stories show how defense and intelligence organizations use GIS to support geospatial intelligence efforts.
