Executive Briefing Series: Geospatial Information

Geospatial information has become crucial to a wide range of federal applications and online services across the domains – military, law enforcement, intelligence, emergency response, agriculture and weather-climate prediction, to name a few. Within the GIS community, the recognition of how foundational geospatial information has grown has even caused a gradual shift to the use of the simpler term “location” data. The term also recognizes that location data can be dynamic, measuring spatially-based phenomena over short periods of time in a given area, unlike more static mapping data.

In this exclusive executive briefing, the following federal practitioners delve into the contemporary issues surrounding geospatial information and its use in applications:

  • Anthony Calamito, Director of Government, Mapbox
  • Tod Dabolt, Chief Data Officer, Department of the Interior
  • John Dombzalski, Global Government Business, Mapbox
  • Shirley Hall, Geospatial Program Manager and Acting Geospatial Information Officer, U.S. Department of Agriculture
  • Phil Klokis, Associate Chief Information Officer, Public Buildings Service, General Services Administration
  • Tony LaVoi, Geospatial Information Officer, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
