Abstract

This article first describes the geography intelligence “contracting nexus” consisting of tens of thousands of companies (including those in the geographical information systems and mapping sector), universities and nonprofits receiving Department of Defense and intelligence agency funding. Second, it discusses the “knowledge nexus” to conceptualize how geographical knowledge figures in current U.S. intelligence efforts, themselves part of the U.S. war on terror and counterinsurgency. It notes a shift from an emphasis on areal and cultural expertise to a focus on calculative predictive spatial analysis in geographical intelligence
