The EU is currently acting as the driving force for the so called "comprehensive approach". The Global Monitoring of Environment & Security worth €1.6 billion is designed to integrate defence, civilian, national security and anti-terrorist GIS intelligence capabilities. This will achieve better results for all parties involved, and most importantly will keep the costs in tight control. It is especially relevant to the GIS intelligence community, as every European government is cutting costs, tightening budgets and reduces spend.
The reduction of spend and the need for geospatial intelligence will be major themes at Defence Geospatial Intelligence (DGI) 2011, January 24-27 in London, where you will learn the latest geospatial strategies, find new ideas and solutions for your organisation. DGI is Europe’s largest gathering for the worlds geospatial intelligence community with over 600 geospatial professionals and over 45 MoD’s gathering together to network, benchmark and set the basis for geospatial strategies for the future.
