Knowledge Management in Geospatial Information Context. A Preliminary Statistical Approach - A Case Study
Authors: M. Filomena Teodoro, Anacleto Correia, Paulo Nunes
Abstract: Information is a determinant subject in modern organization operations. The success of joint and combined operations with organizations partners depends on the accurate information and knowledge flow concerning the operations theatre: provision of resources, environment evolution, markets location, where and when an event occurred. As in the past and nowadays we cannot conceive modern operations without maps and geo-spatial information (GI). Information and knowledge management is fundamental to the success of organizational decisions in an uncertainty environment. The georeferenced information management is a process of knowledge management, it begins in the raw data and ends on generating knowledge. GI and intelligence systems allow us to integrate all other forms of intelligence and can be a main platform to process and display geo-spatial-time referenced events. Combining explicit knowledge with peoples know-how to generate a continuous learning cycle that supports real time decisions mitigates the influences of fog of everyday competition and provides the knowledge supremacy. Geo-spatial information and intelligence systems allow us to integrate all other forms of intelligence and act as a main platform to process and display geo-spatial-time referenced events. Combining explicit knowledge with person know-how to generate a continuous learning cycle that supports real time decisions, mitigates the influences of fog of war and provides the knowledge supremacy. These investigation describes the analysis done after the construction and application of a questionnaire and interviews about the GI and intelligence management in a military organization. The study intended to identify the stakeholders requirements for a military spatial data infrastructure as well as the requirements for a future software system development.
