Using ArcGIS for Geospatial Intelligence


This course teaches geospatial concepts and recommended workflows that support the production of timely, accurate, and actionable intelligence. Using relevant scenarios and operational problems, you will learn how to manage, analyze, and visualize geospatial data, then share your work by producing mission-specific products aligned with industry best practices.

Who Should Attend

Entry to mid-level professionals with 2-7 years of experience in the military, intelligence, or national security communities who specialize in one or more of the following areas:

  • Intelligence planning
  • Geospatial intelligence
  • All-source intelligence
  • Terrain analysis
  • Imagery exploitation
  • Intelligence production
  • Collection management

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate and prepare geospatial data for use in GEOINT fusion, analysis, and intelligence products
  • Perform different types of geospatial analyses (including terrain, raster-based, viewshed, and temporal) to evaluate potential threats and identify patterns, hot spots, and clusters
  • Evaluate suitability of multiple locations for tactical operations
  • Create operational map products that include military grids, operational overlays, and military standard symbology
