GPSPhotography.com is a new online resource dedicated to connecting the dots between GPS, Digital Photography, and mapping technology, and shedding light on how these tools are being integrated to improve the intelligence collection and analysis process in a wide range of industries. The new site will provide industry news, case studies, technology trends, product reviews, and a wealth of other free resources aimed at educating military, federal, local government, and commercial organizations.
“Aerial and ground photographs have always been seen as important sources of information for many government and commercial organizations. However, with the continuous technological advancement of digital cameras capable of capturing rich images that contain spatial and non-spatial metadata and integrating these images with databases and analysis tools such as geographic information systems (GIS) has significantly increased the potential value that photographic information can deliver," explained Matt Kidd, President at Geo Tactical Solutions, Inc. (GTS).
“At GTS, we develop GPS modules and firmware that enhance digital cameras and enable our customers to capture the critical who, what, when, where and why with a simple press of the shutter. This transforms a simple photograph from being just an image into a powerful source of information. Images collected in the field can then be seamlessly uploaded into a variety of mapping applications and combined with other critical data to provide analysts and decision makers with more complete intelligence.
It is important to note that we are just one company among many working together to deliver these capabilities. Although the costs associated with adopting this technology are relatively low and the benefits are potentially huge, we have found that many organizations are simply unaware of it, yet curious to learn more about how it can help improve their particular workflow. We plan on using GPSPhotography.com as an outlet to share news, case studies, product reviews, and other resources in an effort to help solve this problem."
