On the Ground with GIS

Ben Conklin, Esri lead for defense solutions talks to Geospatial Intelligence Forum magazine about ArcGIS for Defense. It includes free packaged templates and standardized workflows customized for military use.

ROOK: A Digital Oasis in a Challenging Environment

The U.S. Marine Corps uses ROOK for disconnected field operations. Publicly available geospatial data and maps can be preloaded before deployment. This means Marines are not forced to rely on classified government systems that may have limited resources and cumbersome administrative procedures.
