National security agencies in Asia are being forced to undertake increasingly complex missions involving rapid response, maritime border security and international cooperation. In order to fulfill this aim, national security organisations are increasingly seeking to establish their own geospatial information (GIS) infrastructure. To learn more, this article takes a look at the reasons why GEOINT is taking off in Southeast Asia, the remaining challenges in its adoption and how the technology will transform national security operations over the next five years.
Asia is regularly subjected to devastating natural disasters, but with each incident we are seeing geospatial intelligence play a growing role in helping coordinate the rescue and recovery missions. Thanks to a range of new technologies and the combined efforts of volunteer geospatial analysts, disaster relief can now be directed to the areas most in need faster than ever before. To learn what is making this possible, click above to download this exclusive article.

Technology has transformed the usefulness of GIS for national security operations. With the combination of new highly effective collection, analysis and dissemination technologies, actionable intelligence can be transferred to operational units like never before. Defence IQ looks at the latest technologies and greatest opportunities to leverage GEOINT in Asia.
Transformative new developments in GIS technology have prompted national security organisations across APAC to enhance their GEOINT capabilities. IQPC takes a look at the views of leading GIS experts from around the world and asks, “Why is GIS now more important for your organisation than ever before?”
In this exclusive interview, IQPC talks with Brett Dixon, Business Manager, APAC Defense Team, Esri Singapore to discover the future of GIS technology and how Asia’s national security organisations can overcome barriers to modernise their GEOINT capabilities.
The collection and production of geospatial capability will be a fundamental ingredient of network-centric warfare in the future. This is especially so given how air, maritime and naval assets are increasingly able to consume geospatial information and services. But piecemeal geospatial intelligence is unsustainable. How does Australia manage the integration and co-ordination of its collective geospatial capability? This report examines these issues.
Beyond the obvious: How the Singapore Armed Forces uses geospatial intelligence to conduct HADR and counter-terrorism operations
Despite its relatively small size in comparison to peers in Southeast Asia, the Singapore Armed Forces features very prominently in regional humanitarian assistance & disaster relief (HADR) and counter-terrorism efforts. We take a look at how geospatial intelligence has assisted the service in carrying out these duties.
Cities transformed: three examples how geospatial analytics have successfully transformed urban living
Maps have been used by humans for centuries to either move from point A to point B, or to plan for the development of various infrastructure projects such as in the construction of new buildings. However in recent years, thanks to advances made by geographic-information systems (GIS), policy makers have also been able to use data from maps to solve a number of urban planning scenarios such as where to locate libraries and the kind of reading materials to distribute at each of these facilities, how to respond faster to deteriorating road conditions, and how to ensure that everyone has access to freshly produced groceries.
