Abstract : Warfighters, Foreign Service Officers and economic analysts demand more flexibility in the data they receive in order to tailor information displays locally. while increased flexibility enhances their options, it challenges interoperability without a common reference. That common reference constitutes a global geospatial framework supporting information fusion across the full spectrum of national security strategy. Ultimately, the application of a common geospatial infrastructure will substantially improve the effectiveness of our National Security Strategy, highlighting options available to decision makers in all branches of government through the application of geographic information and spatial analysis.
