A Paradigm Shift in Geospatial Intelligence?  Challenges for a new generation of analysts to support the GEOINT tradecraft

Recorded December 9, 2010

Is the GEOINT paradigm shifting from the technologically centric "find, fix and finish" warfare to a more anticipatory posture focused on human interests? Is today's GEOINT community prepared for the analytic challenge of including cultural, population, economic and political geographies? What are the implications for the tradecraft and the geospatial intelligence professional? 

We believe changes are underway, and this webinar addresses what those changes mean to those who work in, support or are training in this field.  Most agree that future success will include a focus on human geography and require a different weave of technology, skills, analytic methods and teamwork.

Join speakers:

  • Todd Bacastow, Professor of Practice for Geospatial Intelligence, Penn State University
  • Ted Cope, Special Function Executive, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
  • Susan Kalweit, Principal, Booz Allen Hamilton
  • Max Baber, Director of Academic Programs, USGIF,

for a discussion on how to focus on a new inclusive professional development enterprise that joins together the analyst, technologist, trainer, educator and mentor. 

This webinar is for:

  • People involved in any facet of GEOINT who are interested in a discussion of the changing national security landscape, impacts of this change on geospatial intelligence, and the implications of these changes on professional development
