Building a High-Resolution GEOINT Community:
A Discussion about Diversity and Inclusion
In the GEOINT world, we understand that higher resolution images—those with discernible and important differences—make for better intelligence. The same holds true for the people who comprise our community: our individual differences make us a more powerful whole.

Keynotes & Panels
In the area of diversity and inclusion, tech and government—and therefore GEOINT—have room to grow. During the final main-stage panel at GEOINT 2021, diversity advocates and experts discussed how to stimulate change.
There is a ton of data and work being done to address climate change by many organizations, both civilian and government. But this data will only matter if it’s shared and communicated correctly to an audience that understands the true crisis we’re in.
Although the U.S. military is united in its mission, it’s divided in its technology. With the help of GEOINT, DoD’s JADC2 concept will close the digital gaps between military services, as well as allied nations. An expert panel at GEOINT 2021 explained how.
Sparkgeo provides geospatial expertise to tech companies.
In Friday’s Government Hub panel, NGA Moonshot: How It All Comes Together, several leaders involved in the Moonshot effort were on hand to promote capabilities, management and support for the mission.
The new face of GEOINT is fresh, full of energy, and adept at identifying the industry’s top problems. With a fierce attitude of openness and collaboration, this new guard of startups and entrepreneurs is already at work developing solutions.
Whether you’re talking about trucks or tradecraft, it’s not enough to be shiny and new; what really matters is what’s happening under the hood.
Not sure what exactly the “metaverse” is? Neither are many of the professionals working on it today. Three of the field’s top actors hash out what the concept means to them, and how they see it unfolding over the next 50 years.

Scientists have made great strides toward understanding the causes and effects of climate change, but there’s still much left to learn. GEOINT can be the ultimate teacher, an expert panel said at GEOINT Foreword.
At a time when artificial intelligence is advancing, the GEOINT community is scrambling to suss out the “why’s” and “how’s” of layering human intelligence into the equation.
The United States is facing increased competition from China and others. Maintaining its edge demands a commitment to cutting-edge R&D, says Dr. John Beieler, director of science and technology at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
There must be a new way of thinking about artificial intelligence and information processing. GEOINT must move beyond maps and imagery.
In response to increasing threats and deluges of data, NGA sets its sights on talent in double-edged strategy that builds up its own professional base while opening its doors to non-traditional commercial and consumer users.
Four panelists discuss the existing geospatial technologies found in space, air, ground and water, and how the fusion of data strategies continues to evolve Geospatial Intelligence.
