Structured observation management (SOM) is a framework for organizing and sharing GEOINT information—normalizing how to capture and record observations from sensors and sources obtained from an image, intelligence report, or other means by an analyst.

Learn how to use ArcGIS as a structured observation management system including workflows for

  • Establishing a web-based workflow for locating, identifying, and capturing observations.
  • Configuring an enterprise database so that observations can be shared across the organization.
