The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) and The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), on Wednesday, July 29, held the final round of the 2020 GEOINT Innovation Tradecraft Competition propelling forward a conversation on the evolution of the nascent mission analytics tradecraft and the importance of discussing new challenges and strategies to achieve mission success.

In the first round, 17 presentations from 15 companies on the best practices in data discovery and alignment to address mission problems through visualization, data sharing, and interoperability. Concluding round one, the judges selected Cesium, Deloitte, HawkEye 360, and Sandia National Laboratories to move on to the final round. Pixia and Presagis were selected as runners up.

The four finalists shared their innovative ideas for the final round of the competition, held on USGIF’s GEOConnect Virtual Main Stage.

In a very close race, Cesium won the GEOINT 2020 Innovation Tradecraft Competition.

“I am very excited to represent Cesium today, and this victory is a reflection of the work that the Cesium team has put in. We always like to push the boundaries. Everyone on the team has put in a lot of effort into making Cesium the best it can be,” said Youssef Victor, 3D Graphics, Cesium.
