As the GEOINT Community expands beyond traditional defense and intelligence arenas, so do innovations that marry geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) technology with the Internet of Things (IoT) and cybersecurity to create smart cities and smart military bases.
A National League of Cities report, “Trends in Smart City Development,” defined a smart city as “one that has developed technological infrastructure that enables it to collect, aggregate, and analyze real-time data to improve the lives of its residents.”
Today’s smart cities embrace fully connected networks of IoT sensors and sensor nodes, smart devices, mobile applications, and social networks that generate location-based data to optimize energy efficiency, security, traffic, infrastructure, public safety, emergency response, and more. The underpinning of the network is geospatial technology that provides a framework for data collection, language for analysis and decision-making, a method for decision implementation, and a means for communication with a public that increasingly drives smart cities.
