A View from the Cloud: Sourcing, Storing and Analysing Imagery in the Digital Era

Geospatial capabilities are continually improving as technologies become more advanced, and sources become more varied. Increased volumes of data have called for a secure storage solution, for which many have been turning to the cloud. Analysts have found themselves in a race to keep up with the volumes of data being produced, and many are turning to AI and ML. In Q3 of 2018 WBR Insights surveyed 100 Heads of Imagery and Geospatial from governments, agencies and organisations across the globe to find out more about the challenges they’re facing and the innovative solutions being brought to the table. 

The Future of Geospatial Imagery Collection Analysis Exploitation & Exchange

We interviewed 100 senior GIS focused professionals from defence and government organisations to discover how they are using GEOINT today,  how they are overcoming their challenges, and what they predict for the future. Inside the report you will find:- The biggest concerns when investing in GIS- How GIS could most effectively evolve to better meet commanders’ future needs- The best methods for maximizing the effectiveness of activity-based intelligence… and much more!

Crowdsourcing Geospatial Information

Crowdsourcing Geospatial Information: The Benefits and Potential The rise and rise of Web 2.0 has transformed the internet once and for all from a static depository of information into the massive, social and participatory medium that it is today. High-speed networks, the smartphone revolution, social media, and distributed information sharing from people from all corners of the globe has changed the data landscape for good. With this has emerged an ever-increasing body of crowdsourced geospatial information, with dedicated communities and thousands upon thousands of non-professional users voluntarily contributing data.Read the full article on the benefits and potential of crowdsourcing geospatial information. 

Peering into the future of geospatial intelligence

In preparation for the Defence Geospatial intelligence (DGI) conference 2018 we wanted to discover what the most pressing issues are for the government agencies, military forces and technology providers around the world who work with GEOINT technology on a daily basis. This survey was conducted across August 2017 with 100 senior GIS focused professionals from defence and government organisations to support the agenda at DGI 2018 and provide both insight and benchmarking opportunities.
