George Mason U Receives Grant To Deploy Intergraph Apps for Intelligence Curriculum

George Mason University (GMU) in Fairfax, VA has been awarded a grant from Intergraph to enable students enrolled in GMU's Geospatial Intelligence Graduate Certificate program to use the company's geospatial production and exploitation software as part of their core curriculum.

The software is used by defense and intelligence agencies in spy work, to organize, pre-process, manage, and integrate geospatial data for advanced image exploitation and geospatial intelligence fusion.

"With strong expertise in geoinformatics, ranging from remote sensing and geographic information science to digital image analysis and sensor networks, George Mason is uniquely positioned to offer a world-leading certificate program in geospatial intelligence," said Anthony Stefanidis, academic director and associate professor, Department of Earth Systems and Geoinformation Sciences at GMU. "Intergraph's geospatial production and exploitation software, combined with the expertise of our staff, create an excellent learning environment to ensure our students are poised to meet the challenges of constantly evolving geospatial intelligence situations."
