Applying the Concepts of Geospatial Intelligence in Law Enforcement and PolicingPennsylvania State University
Osceola Breakout Room 1

This course explains the fundamental relevance of spatial concepts and behavioral theories as they apply to law enforcement and policing, and teaches the applications of geographic information science, technology, and geospatial intelligence to law enforcement analysis.


Understanding the Syrian Refugee Crisis through Open-Source Trend AnalysisBAE Systems
Osceola Breakout Room 2

This training will use a recently completed NGA project on the Syrian refugee crisis to demonstrate how to successfully leverage unstructured open-source data and apply methodologies that support flexible, multi-phase intelligence output options.


From Cyber-Physical Nexus to Cyber-GIS: Techniques for Integrating Cyber into an Organization’s Common Operational PictureDeloitte
Osceola Breakout Room 3

In this training, attendees will learn techniques for using existing GIS technology to build a truly common operational picture that addresses issues discussed in the 2013 trajectory magazine article “Cyber-Location Nexus: Closing the Gap Between the Physical and Cyber Realms and What That Means for GEOINT” and enables employment of GEOINT techniques against wide-ranging organizational challenges.


Critical Thinking: Within a Scenario-based ConstructGeneral Dynamics Information Technology
Osceola Breakout Room 4

This training teaches attendees the relationship between the practice of geospatial intelligence and its integration into the intelligence cycle and how it supports the warfighter through critical thinking and the analysis of competing hypotheses process.


Building a Better Analyst: From GIS and Imagery Analysis to Web Application DevelopmentIntergraph Government Solutions
Osceola Breakout Room 5

This session will expand the breadth of attendees’ geospatial expertise by learning when and how to automate workflows through the development of geospatial models; discover innovative approaches to working with imagery, LiDAR, and radar data; easily integrate multiple sources for broader situational understanding; and develop custom applications to support dynamic visualization, geoprocessing, data analytics, and task-specific workflows.


Anticipatory Intelligence for GEOINTMelonie Richey, Camber
Osceola Breakout Room 6

The purpose of this course is to familiarize attendees with the concepts surrounding predictive geospatial simulations. The session will be divided into three topical areas: open-source data discovery, base mapping techniques for social phenomena (human geography), and predictive geospatial simulations (entities across physical geography).
