At a conference stacked with high-profile keynote speakers, informative break-out sessions, and an exhibit hall full of innovative industry experts, attendees at the GEOINT 2013* Symposium have had their choice of attractions and activities to fill their time. One highlight, however, was the keynote speech on Tuesday morning by National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Director Letitia A. Long, addressing the importance of immersive intelligence and the future of geospatial data analysis.
“NGA is at a decisive moment in our history. NGA is driving intelligence integration, and NGA is leading the way from integration to the next phase of intelligence,” she began. Over the past several years, NGA has worked tirelessly to pursue its goals of intelligence integration, putting GEOINT in the hands of user, providing online, on-demand access to GEOINT, and broadening their analytic expertise. “Today I can say without any doubt, we are achieving our goals. We have crossed the tipping point in realizing our vision.”
