DigitalGlobe is using crowdsourcing to develop their object detection algorithms. Not too unlike how Google developed their Image search. These algorithms allow the system to perform feature extraction from images right after they are taken. Traditional analysis can take hours, days, and sometime weeks to breakout all of the features of an image.

Missouri is working hard to keep NGA in St Louis in the battle over where the new Agency's new western HQ will be built. #GEOINT2015   #GEOINT   #NGA   #Geospatial   #Missouri   #StLouis  
  JEFFERSON CITY – Gov. Jay Nixon today signed into law House Bill 514 to help keep thousands of high-paying jobs at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in Missouri. The legislation provides additional capacity in the State Supplemental Tax Increment Financing program so that this performance-based redevelopment program can accommodate a project of this size....

Yesterday at GEOINTeraction Tuesday, hosted by the +United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), Mr. Douglas P. McGovern, Director of InnoVision, NGA; and Ms. Karyn Hayes-Ryan, Component Acquisition Executive, NGA and the Director of NSG Program Management Office, addressed dozens of members of the GEOINT community.

They discussed recent activities from InnoVision and Acquisition, including the collaboration on programs such as NGA’s new GEOINT Solutions Marketplace (GSM) that aims to speed-up acquisition of new technologies for specific community challenges. Additionally stated, NGA is collaborating with DIA and has invited other government agencies to join them in this or similar endeavors to improve efficiency in acquisition.

The goal is to change the relationship between the government, industry partners, and academia by connecting the vendor with the user which will cut down acquisition time and improve the vendors’ ability to accurately satisfy government requirements.

Take-aways:
- Looking for ways to use or transform existing technologies to fit Intelligence needs
- Be prepared to present demonstrations and useable (or at least tweakable) solutions
- GSM and the upcoming ISM will be a one-stop-shop for industry members to get into NGA

If you are interested in taking advantage of this process, visit https://www.nga.mil/partners/GSM/ 

“Held the second Tuesday of every other month, GEOINTeraction Tuesday is a casual networking event where you can develop new relationships, exchange ideas and discover business opportunities. Each event features a guest speaker from the Defense, Intelligence or Homeland Security Community who shares their views on current issues and answers audience questions.”

Wondering what mobile checkin apps are out there? With the latest changes to Foursquare we'd thought we'd write a piece on the topic. Give it a read and we'd love to hear what you think and what checkin apps you use and why.

"The world just got a whole lot smaller"
Introduction
Status: 2014-08-08 We are still active but a lot less these days. Our day jobs are taking priority. We will continue to post interesting Geospatial content and the occasional video when we can. We thank you for your support and if you would like to be on our show please shoot us a message. =) 

Project Geo is a web series dedicated to increasing awareness of Geospatial Technology, industry best practices, and GIS resources. The cast consists of Adam Simmons and Mason Rothman.

We also air special episodes covering unique topics and interviews. Last year we covered GEOINT 2012. Here are a few notable people we have interviewed:
  • Keith Masback - USGIF President
  • Dr Shay Har-Noy - Tomnod CEO
  • Paul Van Dinther - A-Tour
Others we have had on the show include:
  • Mickey Mellen - Google Earth Blog
  • Bert De Bruijn - WikiWar
  • Wes Herche - Geospatial Enthusiast
  • Josh Williams - geteach.com
We love having guests on the show to elaborate on specific areas of the Geospatial Industry. If you consider yourself a Geospatial expert, hobbyist, or someone who is involved with maps, geography, cartography, or anything related to GIS we welcome your participation and input. Send us a message on Google+ if you want to be apart of our next episode.
