Defense and intelligence organizations integrate geographic information system (GIS) technology to manage processes, workflows, policies, and communication. With GIS, agency staff and leaders can integrate diverse types of data to derive understanding, operationalize solutions, share insights, and engage stakeholders and the public. 

Using GIS to incorporate location intelligence into high-level decision-making provides powerful insights on critical issues and supports science- and analysis-based situational awareness.
