What Does a SETA GEOINT Do?

Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) is the analysis of imagery and data to describe, assess, survey, and depict physical features, human activities, and geographical locations on earth.

It involves the use of mapping, remotely sensed information, charting, virtual and augmented reality, imagery analysis, and imagery intelligence to source and analyze data. While GEOINT is typically associated with the military, it can provide immense benefits in telecommunications, agriculture, health and safety, real estate, automotive and other industries in the private sector.
