Army Geospatial

My good friend Bill Farr sent me this YouTube link yesterday showing US Army Geospatial Engineers in what appears to be a planning exercise in preparation for deploying to Africa as part of the Ebola relief effort. The video was filmed at the Army Geospatial Center on Fort Belvoir, VA (the old Topographic Engineering Center) and it shows enlisted geospatial analysts running through different scenarios.

I post the video mainly for comparison. A lot of my civilian GIS colleagues really have no idea just what geospatial engineers in the US military do. This is a short but good snapshot of the kinds of projects Army geospatial engineers work on day-to-day.
