This lesson focused on how the analyst's craft completes the picture provided by GEOINT data. GEOINT data is an incomplete record of the human and physical qualities at a location that uniquely created a place. These data are extracted chunks of information from other intelligence and geographic products.

Using the data within the analyst's craft allows us to frame patterns of human activities to develop insights and make predictions.
