The Geospatial Revolution

This vid is from a fascinating Coursera.org class I’m taking.  Geospatial Intelligence (geoint) uses information about people in places at a given time and location to “decision advantage”. Our ever-expanding network of satellites and sensors (especially our cell phones) facilitate everything from our finding the nearest coffee shop to Obama’s ability to locate targets for drone assassination. Geoint is wonderful and creepy. Not necessarily in that order.
