American Geographical Society spotlights RGi

The American Geographical Society (AGS) recently published an article featuring RGi and our CEO, Steve Gillotte. The article discusses how RGi works to “improve the mobility of data and information in austere environments by providing consistent and reliable access to geospatial data and information to disadvantaged users.” The article goes on to highlight RGi’s R&D investment in Predictive Activity Based Planning, and how the team is exploring how machine learning and natural language processing algorithms can analyze Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and strategic/tactical operational data in order to predict the likelihood that an event will take place.

According to AGS, “the world of geography is fortunate to have RGi pushing the boundaries of geospatial awareness, technology and knowledge.” To read the full article, please visit the AGS blog.

RGi’s Lander presents at FOSS4G 2017

RGi Software Engineer Steven Lander presented at this year’s FOSS4G event in Boston, MA on August 16, 2017. Lander’s presentation – Containerizing your geospatial applications with Docker – explained how easy Docker, and containerization in general, makes it to build and deploy geospatial applications.

Throughout his presentation, Lander showed how Docker was integrated into RGi’s continuous integration environment for testing, how containers have allowed RGi to rapidly demonstrate new capability to stakeholders, and how to debug a web application running in a Docker container using JNLP.
