In this edition of the got geoint? podcast series, we are joined by Dr. Darryl Murdock, vice president of professional development at the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF). Darryl discussed USGIF’s upcoming State of GEOINT Content Exchanges, which will take place around the country next month and inform the Foundation’s 2017 State of GEOINT Report.

Each half-day, unclassified session will discuss and document current and future global geospatial intelligence trends and challenges. Teams will self-select to further develop topics of interest into short articles for inclusion in USGIF’s 2017 State of GEOINT Report.
