Morning Training Sessions
Using Geospatial Data to Generate a Common Understanding of the Environment
This session covers how unclassified reporting can feed geospatial tools to provide a common understanding of conflict-sensitive environments. Unclassified government reports, open-source information, threat reports, and humanitarian situation reports can be combined in one tool to provide government organizations the information needed to operate such an environment.
Neighborhood Spatial Modeling Workshop
This workshop provides participants the skills and tools to map and attribute neighborhood spaces within the urban zone by defining and incorporating social media, academic techniques, and open sources. Participants must have basic GIS skills, allowing them to understand and apply spatial primitives such as points, lines, and polygons in the construction of neighborhood boundaries.
OpenStreetMap: Source for Worldwide, Seamless, Crowdsourced Geospatial Feature Data
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a worldwide project to create and share seamless, integrated foundation geospatial data, and it has grown to collect data via 1.9 million registered contributors around the world. From this seminar, participants receive information, tools, and ideas that enhance their ability to use OSM to support mission objectives.
Hand-Held Open Apertures: Methods and Technology & Hand-Held ISR—Traditions and Future
Red Hen Systems
This session discusses mobile GEOINT by exploring how adding first-person viewpoints can be particularly useful. Participants will review the recent history, current practices, and near future for immersion, panography, point cloud, and other topics for ground imagery spatialists as related to mobile GEOINT.
Commercial Electro Optical Imaging
USGIF EO Working Group
This training includes modules discussing services available under NGA’s EnhancedView contract; imagery use cases available and an overview of the RapidEye Constellation; an in-depth view of global change monitoring using RapidEye data; imagery processing services; satellite ground station services; and time dominant imagery analysis.
Multi-INT Fusion for Activity Recognition from Uncoordinated Sensors
In this interactive workshop, Aptima and Kitware explore adapting the existing pipeline of sensor exploitation tools to reflect the shift in tasking and collection processes. The session addresses challenges and discusses examples from the GEOINT and space situational awareness communities.
