National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Key Developments

National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and DigitalGlobe Open Source Toolkit to Harness the Power of Collaborative Mapping

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and DigitalGlobe have partnered to release an open source software toolkit designed to harness the power of crowdsourced mapping for Geospatial Big Data Analytics. The open source project Hootenanny provides a scalable processing engine and interactive editing interface to enable rapid conflation of map features generated from satellite imagery, UAVs, and mobile devices. In less than a decade crowdsourced mapping communities like OpenStreetMap have attracted over 2.5 million volunteers who have digitized more than 130 million buildings and 1.3 million miles of roads. Countless other organizations and individuals are using satellite imagery and other methods to capture the geometry and metadata of roads, buildings, and points of interest. To create high-quality maps and enable analytic functions like routing, suitability analysis, or predictive modeling it is important to unify multiple sources to create the best available database.
