Online Journal: Military Geospatial Technology

One of the main users of geospatial technology and techniques is the United States military. Intelligence analysts go over data combing for information relating to the defense of the nation.

Military Geospatial Technology is a print journal with online features that highlights the latest in geospatial uses and theory. The main readers are military and intelligence personnel but anyone who can read ESRI’s stuff can understand MGT.

A good article explains what geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) is. The days of simple photo interpretation is gone. Nowadays officers overlay imagery on GIS and other views to gain a better understanding of the world.
