USGIF Updates Membership Directory
USGIF released its 2013 Membership Directory in the Q1 issue of trajectory magazine.
The directory contains brief descriptions and contact information for all 224 USGIF sustaining member organizations. The directory is also complemented by an online capabilities index, which lists more than 50 products and services the membership organizations provide.
“The membership directory is a year-round resource to connect with USGIF sustaining member organizations that provide a diverse array of geospatial products and services,” said exhibitor and membership services manager, Bill Allder III. “A primary goal of the Foundation is to help organizations develop connections with government, military, academia, and industry to grow business, and to find new partners, vendors, and customers. We work hard to create opportunities for our members to succeed in the GEOINT market.”
The 2013 USGIF Membership Directory will be available in print at upcoming USGIF events including GEOINTeraction Tuesday, SAR/EO Training, ABI Forum, and GEOINT Community Week. An interactive, online version of the directory can be found at trajectory’s website.
About the Directory
The membership directory reflects the 224 USGIF Members at the time of the January 15 print deadline. Questions about USGIF membership should be directed to Jeff Ley, USGIF director of business development, membership and exhibitions, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For several years now, a number of mathematical, scientific, acquisition, and analysis disciplines have been converging as components of a larger discipline—geospatial intelligence. GEOINT has become the cornerstone of our national and homeland security through its place at the functional center of many diverse intelligence methods.
Recently, the private sector is experiencing a similar convergence of geospatial intelligence disciplines. From this, USGIF was formed, becoming the first and only foundation where members can work together—toward a mutual goal of improving our nation’s homeland security through the benefits of their work.
USGIF is the only organization of its kind aimed at bringing together the many disciplines involved in the geospatial intelligence sector to exchange ideas, share best practices, and promote the education and importance of a national geospatial intelligence agenda.
