"The Geospatial Intelligence Certificate, accredited by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) provides education and training in scientific concepts, methods and key geospatial technologies, used in the solution of global problems of human security, including natural disasters, humanitarian crisis, environmental risks, military operations, political violence, public health and challenges in access to food.
USGIF’s purpose is to promote the geospatial intelligence tradecraft and to develop a stronger community of interest between government, industry, academia, professional organizations and individuals. USGIF is the only organization providing Higher Education accreditation in the GEOINT domain, being a world leader in this field.
In order to obtain the GEOINT Certificate, students will have to:
- Be enrolled in the following course units: Geographic Information Systems and Science, Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT), GIS Applications, GIS Modelling, Remote Sensing;
- Enroll in other elective course units to complete the remaining 22,5 ECTS;
- Deliver a Scientific Thesis/Work Project/Internship Report, in Geospatial Intelligence."
The South Coast of Bangladesh, including the districts of Chittagong and Barishal experienced on May 21st the tropical cyclone Roanu. It hit Bangladesh, crossing North of Chittagong coast. Torrential rains accompanied with strong winds have been lashing the coastal areas of South Bangladesh causing damages in several districts including Chittagong and Barishal.
"The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) officially launched its Universal GEOINT Certification Program this morning during general session at its GEOINT 2016 Symposium, marking an exciting milestone for the GEOINT Community.
USGIF’s certification program includes three exams with corresponding certifications: GIS and Analysis Tools (CGP-G); Remote Sensing and Imagery Analysis (CGP-R); and Geospatial Data Management (CGP-D). A fourth competency—data visualization—is incorporated throughout all of the exams."
Esri's ArcGIS software supports visualizing, interpreting, and analyzing Sentinel-2 imagery available from the European Space Agency. This is used for land monitoring, maritime, climate, and security applications.
Your Data Should Do the Same Today's world is no longer driven by data – it's driven by the connections between them.
Big data alone used to be enough, but enterprise leaders need more than just volumes of information to make bottom-line decisions. You need real-time insights into how data is related.
Data relationships drive today's intelligent applications, and you need a database that harnesses those connections for sustainable competitive advantage. That solution is a graph database.
Graphs – i.e., networks – are the most efficient and intuitive way of working with data, mimicking the interconnectedness of ideas in the human mind. Neo4j is built from the ground up to harness the power of graphs for real-time, bottom-line insights.
Discover the competitive advantage of using a graph database
Location analytics begins only when GeoEnrichment is completed. It’s the starting point through which all location-based data flows. The problem is that most geospatial analysts spend 70% of their time on data preparation, data cleansing, address validation and geocoding. Only then can users be
As long ago as ancient Greece, Plato wrote "astronomy compels the soul to look upward, and leads us from this world to another." More recently, science fiction - whether in literature, comics, TV or films - has inspired generations to become involved in space programmes. For Dutch astronaut André Kuipers, it was the German science fiction series; 'Perry Rhodan' that grabbed his imagination.
"When I was twelve years old, my grandmother gave me some science fiction books from the famous Perry Rhodan series. I couldn't stop reading them. From that moment on, my dream was to become an astronaut."
Kuipers is a member of a select group of Europeans who have been fortunate enough to travel to space.
"Neo4j Spatial is a library of utilities for Neo4j that facilitate the enabling of spatial operations on data. In particular you can add spatial indexes to already located data, and perform spatial operations on the data like searching for data within specified regions or within a specified distance of a point of interest. In addition classes are provided to expose the data to GeoTools and thereby to GeoTools-enabled applications like GeoServer and uDig.
The key features include:
- Utilities for importing from ESRI Shapefile as well as Open Street Map files
- Support for all the common geometry types: Point, LineString, Polygon, etc.
- An RTree index for fast searches on geometries
- Support for topology operations during the search (contains, within, intersects, covers, disjoint, etc.)
- The possibility to enable spatial operations on any graph of data, regardless of the way the spatial data is stored, as long as an adapter is provided to map from the graph to the geometries.
- Ability to split a single layer or dataset into multiple sub-layers or views with pre-configured filters"
The Smart City model uses robust GIS for building urban resilience. The GIS framework seamlessly integrates with other technologies supporting visualization and analysis in real time. This becomes the mainstay of ‘smart’ management providing resource optimization, open and participatory governance and efficient management of city infrastructure.
