Developing a Tactical-Level Geospatial Course for Army Engineers
Track: Defense & Intelligence
Authors: Jared Ware
The Geospatial Engineer Tactical Operations Course (GETOC) uses ArcGIS and ArcReader to enable Army engineers to learn the basics of geospatial analysis as it applies to tactical military operations. Overall course development/design used ESRI’s ArcGIS as the primary software based in the software’s ease-of-use, flexibility, and commonality across the defense community. The major benefit from the course is receiving a quality educational experience using realistic data and ESRI software.
