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

“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.”

Tracking Geopolitical events using Geospatial technology can be difficult and requires the understanding of the situation and watching trends over time. This is a great writeup about the Russian Troop observations in Ukraine. Check it out.

On August 28, 2014 NATO released a series of satellite images showing Russian troops operating inside the sovereign borders of Ukraine. These images are black and white photos without any specific ...

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.

Geospatial Data Sources - Foundation of Awareness
We've come out with a similar list before but we decided to update and go deeper into what Geospatial Data Sources are available to give you a good start. Perhaps we should call this a Geospatial Data Starters Kit?

Well....I guess it could be worse. Overall the Stereotype map is just amusing.
We asked people in BuzzFeed's U.K. office to tell us what stereotypes they had of every state in the U.S.A. Here are their responses. We're so terribly sorry, America.

USGS has a new way of displaying geospatial datafeeds of their hydrography dataset. #GIS #Data #Datafeed #USGS #Hydrography
 
New Hydro Tools: The USGS has released a web-based geospatial services known as the Hydrography Event Management (HEM) Tools that allow users to create, edit, and display geospatial markers, called Events, that are referenced to the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD). Events can be customized by the user to represent nearly any water-related feature. Some examples of Events include streamgages, scenic or impaired stretches of river, fish passage barriers, toxic spills, or put-ins/take-outs for boats. For this initial release, users can customize their own HEM Web edit tool using a sample application and the required web services. http://bit.ly/R7RvCB

Story
Tagline
"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.
