    The Expanding Reach of Geospatial Intelligence: Lessons Learned from 21,000 Students

    The 21,000 students of the recently completed Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) confirmed that Geospatial Intelligence, or GEOINT, is an internationally recognized concept. The international notion of GEOINT goes beyond the narrow national defense-related definition in the U.S. Code. GEOINT delivers insights gained from place and time for a decision advantage. GEOINT plays a critical role in the US and other countries’ efforts to keep the homeland safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards.  

    In this webinar we will examine:

    •  Lessons learned from the recently completed GEOINT MOOC
    • The emerging worldwide definition of geospatial intelligence
    • Why GEOINT is an important international component to homeland security
    • Aspects of professionalism in GEOINT


    Dr. Todd S. Bacastow, Penn State University

    Dr. Greg Thomas, Penn State University

    Who should attend – federal, state, tribal, and local government officials, private sector partners, and community organizations involved in geospatial intelligence and homeland security and emergency management efforts.

    Unleash Huge Market Opportunities in Augmented Realty with the New OGC Open Standard

    A huge market opportunity exists for mobile applications that utilize Augmented Realty — overlaying images of real world objects with virtual objects and data up until now, however, lack of interoperability has been a serious obstacle to market growth.  Now, the OGC Augmented Reality Markup Language (ARML 2.0), a recently announced open standard, removes that obstacle for AR app developers and AR content providers.

    In this webinar you will learn

    • What ARML 2.0 is and what it can do
    • Why an open standard is necessary for AR market growth
    • Why an AR standard needs to play well with other geospatial standards

    More details

    Augmented Reality Markup Language (ARML 2.0) was developed within the Open Geospatial Consortium, an international industry consortium of 511 companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface standards. OGC® Standards support interoperable solutions that geo-enable the Web, wireless and location-based services and mainstream IT. The standards empower technology developers to make complex spatial information and services accessible and useful with all kinds of applications.


    Martin Lechner, Chairman of the OGC ARML 2.0 Standards Working Group and CTO at Wikitude GmbH
    Scott Simmins, Executive Director, OGC Standards Program

    Who should attend

    System architects, AR application developers and project managers, computer vision experts and those interested in location services.
