Special User Group Meetings

Human Terrain Analysis and the GEOINT Professional
Monday, October 27
1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Belle Meade Conference Room C&D
This informal meeting is an open discussion concerning the emerging critical knowledge areas of an entry level Human Terrain Analyst (HTA) and the roles of training and education in their preparation. Geospatial Intelligence has been demonstrated to have a critical function with respect to understanding the Human Terrain (HT) in activities that deter war, resolve conflict, promote peace and support civil authorities in response to domestic crises. The effective analysis of HT demands a deep understanding of the human context and analysts own biases which allow the GEOINT professional to methodically filter and focus information about a typically out-of-the-ordinary situation.
