Analytic Experience in Geospatial Intelligence


Lesson Learning Objectives

The effective analyst must have a working base of knowledge before starting analysis. When dealing with a new and unfamiliar subject, the uncritical and relatively non-selective accumulation and review of geospatial information is a necessary first step. This grounding in the problem is a process of absorbing geospatial information, not analyzing it. Grounding can also be viewed as a problem reduction effort where a problem is decomposed into a set of subproblems.

The objectives for this lesson are:

  • Ground yourself in the problem by Identifying the key knowledge of the domain.
