GIS integrates intelligence

Intelligence organizations are challenged to continually deliver the most up-to-date information to decision-makers. Geography provides the context for this data and speeds understanding of all types of intelligence activity. 

GIS supports the intelligence cycle

ArcGIS helps intelligence organizations integrate information at all phases of the intelligence cycle, from collection to dissemination. Location intelligence helps integrate all types of intelligence, including the following:

  • Human intelligence (HUMINT)
  • Signals intelligence (SIGINT)
  • Open source intelligence (OSINT)
  • Geospatial intelligence (GEOINT)
  • All-source intelligence

Intelligence enterprise integration

ArcGIS is designed to integrate into large, heterogenous, and constantly evolving systems. Esri partners and customers integrate ArcGIS into the systems used in intelligence organizations.
