Location intelligence & Security: another gem from the Geospatial Revolution

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! It’s been a wet one here in Brisbane so while I’ve been cooped up indoors, I thought I would put my time to good use!

The latest installment of the fantastic series Geospatial Revolution was released this week, and like all episodes that have gone before it, this one offers another insightful view into how location intelligence affects us all.

This is the third episode now, and it explores location intelligence in the world of security: how new technologies help to broker peace, wage war, and fight crime… but sometimes at the cost of personal privacy.

Highlights include:

  • Application of digital mapping technology in negotiations to end the Bosnian war
  • Waging modern war and keeping the peace with geospatial technologies
  • Use of geospatial technology and GPS by law enforcement
  • Security and privacy issues surrounding GPS stalking in cases of potential domestic violence

It’s really interesting stuff, so the next time it’s a rainy day, or even if you can find a spare 15 minutes, I urge you to check it out!
