Understanding Terrorism Events Using Spatial Analytics
Track: Defense & Intelligence
Authors: Derek Silva
NGA strives to leverage available Esri Space-Time Pattern Mining Tools in conjunction with spatio-temporal datasets to analyze patterns in terrorism event data. Event data is aggregated into space-time bins and evaluated using trend analysis to detect patterns in the data. These efforts are seeking to maximize GEOINT data/products to support intelligence, planning or operational uses in preparation for future contingencies through understanding the magnitude of risk.
