Ken Bergman, #USArmy Geospatial Center liaison, visited GIS Day at U.S. Army Fort Leonard Wood this week to speak with Soldiers about geospatial products available to them for exercises and deployments. Bergman wants to spread the word to infantrymen, artillerymen and engineers that a wealth of location data is available to them with simply a network connection and a Common Access Card.

3D environments to play larger role in Project Convergence 2021

Follow the link for more: “This geospatial 3D data has a place and it really supports multiple [CFTs]” Blohm said. “And how do we use this to support a SHORAD [short-range air defense] navigation and timing? Maybe it doesn't help with the timing too much, but certainly it helps in a GPS-denied environment. We're going to use this 3D data to help us position ourselves and do navigation for those kind of environments.” #ArmyTeam

Are you prepared?

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, wildfires, hurricanes and flooding there is no better time to be involved.

The 2020 NPM theme is: "Disasters Don’t Wait. Make Your Plan Today."

What does Army Geospatial do for you?

The term geospatial is fairly new and often misunderstood. Army Mappers is not quite right to describe it all. What we’d like to focus on is what we can we do for you. In the early '90s the term geo-spatial was coined as a way to describe the computing environment that mirrored geographic and spatial relationships. The move from paper maps to mobile GPS brought geospatial data to the forefront. Today, Army Geospatial includes Geospatial Information Systems (GIS), analysis and imagery interpretation. The scientists and engineers at AGC primarily look for ways to engage Army commands that need increased awareness of their own location or any point on a digital map that is of interest to their mission.

AGC is Geospatial Data - Domain Expertise - Training & Reach Back for Warfighters - System Development - Technology Integration

NGA's Office of Sciences and Methodologies (ATS) has posted an open continuous vacancy announcement seeking image scientist candidates. This leverages the new intelligencejobs.gov interface for hiring so it looks a bit different (link below). The vacancy can be filled at St. Louis or Virginia. https://www.nsa.gov/psp/applyonline/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/c/HRS_HRAM.HRS_APP_SCHJOB.GBL?Page=HRS_APP_SCHJOB&Action=U&FOCUS=Applicant&SiteId=1 At the link above look for the GEOINT Analyst (Spectral Imagery Scientist) announcement. This is for an entry level position (GS 11 to 13 equivalent). NGA plans on having an image science hiring event on 19 or 26 January 2018 at NCE, depending on how many resumes we receive from this online post. Please help me spread the word to any of your students that may wish to take advantage of this opportunity! Regards, Frank.
The National Geodetic Survey is moving from NAD83 and NADV88 in 2022 to a time-adjusted Earth-centric datum. This will have huge ramification for the geospatial world. I would strongly encourage one and all to listen in to the following free webinar explaining what's happened. If you would like a similar brief aimed specifically at Army, please let me know and I'll make on happen.
