The vastly changing information landscape demands a shift in how Defence and Security organizations conduct their operations and share intelligence. Geospatial technologies, artificial intelligence, the cloud, and edge computing can all be leveraged to turn limitless information into actionable, data-driven insights for improved decision-making. Integrating location intelligence into the data collection and analysis framework must be a top priority for all Defence organizations.  

A geographic approach integrates and supports powerful capabilities in analysis, visualization, and collaboration. Powered by GIS, it builds a geospatial infrastructure network to support data integration and work collaboration so that information can be transformed into valuable intelligence. 

Hear from a panel of Defence experts on how geospatial technology is transforming their organizations to improve their services and better support their customers.
