GIS for Defence and Intelligence
Most defence and national security decisions involve location. Whether assessing potential terrorist targets, planning where to strike on the battlefield, or deciding where to locate a new building with minimal environmental impact, geography always comes into the equation. Geographic Information System (GIS) technology
is playing an increasingly important role in making these types of decisions.
GIS gives you the tools to unlock and reveal meaningful patterns in data and provide the intelligence support needed for mission success. GIS lets you capture, manage, analyse, and display geographically referenced information, giving you a clear and accurate picture of your data and the many complex relationships behind it.
From informing military operations and mapping the human geography of an area to managing military installations and facilities, GIS is enabling defence forces around the world to make quicker, more accurate operational decisions.

Sharing GIS next step in building national security
John Day, the Director of Defence at Esri, tells the Asia Pacific Defence Reporter magazine why sharing GIS technology between agencies must be the next step in building Australia's national security strategy.
GIS is being used by Australia’s military to plot socio-cultural information, helping to make more informed decisions while deployed on operations overseas.
An enterprise-wide approach to GIS is essential to Australia’s Department of Defence achieving their strategic goal of geospatial information superiority and knowledge dominance.
GIS is providing NATO with strong, centralised geospatial capabilities to support their peacekeeping and security missions.
