Afternoon Training Sessions
GEOINT 101A: Function and Mission, USGIF and The Intelligence & Security Academy
During this fast-paced course we will provide an overview of the function and mission of GEOINT as it is practiced today. A wide variety of example imagery, geospatial data, videos, and analytic outputs will be used to illustrate key points.
Introduction to Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Analysis Tools
This workshop presents the core skills needed for understanding how to create real-world products from shortwave infrared (SWIR) spectral information, focusing on modules applied to urban mapping, wildfire mitigation, flooding, and disaster relief/humanitarian response. This course is designed for analysts with minimal spectral data experience.
The World in 3D: Point Cloud Technology
Naval Postgraduate School
This course illustrates the technologies used to obtain 3D point clouds and 3D measurements at high spatial resolution. The training reviews technologies such as LiDAR, 3D models derived from electro-optical systems, and synthetic aperture radar. It also reviews the technologies for display, analysis, and exploitation of such data.
Deep Learning on GPUs: A Breakthrough in Image Classification
This session introduces deep learning in the broader context of machine learning and the factors driving its success as well as the key phases and considerations of developing and deploying deep learning systems on graphics processing units (GPUs). In addition, learn how to leverage popular open-source, deep learning toolkits.
Advances in Geospatial Mapping Technologies to Serve Defense and Homeland Security
This training provides a dynamic forum to address current advances in aerial geospatial sensor technology and data processing as it relates to the geospatial intelligence and defense communities. Among the topics presented are traditional and mobile LiDAR technologies, imaging sensors, and unmanned aerial systems.
The Geographic Approach and Spatial Literacy Workshop
Through interactive group discussion and example scenarios, participants gain an understanding of how spatial analyses and the geographic approach are used in many different disciples around the world such as health, law enforcement, market analysis, defense, natural resources, planning, and more.
The Devil’s in the Data: Commercial, Combat, and Policy Applications for Spatiotemporal Big Data
This interactive session outlines some of the major developments in data-driven and spatial analytics from the past 10 years, including lessons learned from the Iraq and Afghanistan battlefields. This seminar draws from on-the-ground experience in combat zones, law enforcement, and commercial analytics.
