Supposed vision of ArcGIS 10.1

Supposed vision of ArcGIS 10.1 | Geographic Information Technology | Scoop.it

This is the supposed vision of the new ArcGIS 10.1 release. Well, we’ll see. Notice how everything has to tie back to Esri, instead of it being integrated into a real workflow (eg Esri geocode–>attribute table of lat/long–>Google Fusion tables–>GeoCommons/Google Maps.). It’s also the first time I can remember anyone at Esri using words like “beautiful map”.

How GEOINT Is Winning the Fight

How GEOINT Is Winning the Fight | Geographic Information Technology | Scoop.it

"The amazing story of the Navy Seals who executed the mission has been widely distributed. What’s largely overlooked is the way in which geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) enabled the mission’s success. Central to this intelligence activity is the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), whose mission is to feed U.S. military forces with "timely, relevant and accurate geospatial intelligence in support of national security." NGA supplied key intelligence for the Bin Laden mission, just as it had supported countless other military operations scattered across Iraq and Afghanistan."
