US: Northrop Grumman Corporation donated a geospatial data set and capability to the Boy Scouts of America in support of their 100th anniversary and to help further scouting education. The company also used the data to showcase their geo-enterprise on-demand solutions.
The data set includes high-resolution Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data and electro-optical imagery. The company utilised its airborne collection capability, including sensors and aircraft, its advanced processing capability, and extrapolated key information from the data which will help the Boy Scouts garner a better understanding of their environment while at the ranch. In Northrop Grumman’s continued partnership with the Boy Scouts, the company will be expanding the types of data that can benefit the scouts and use the information for research and development.
John Olesak, Northrop Grumman vice president of integrated intelligence systems, said “We congratulate the Boy Scouts on their 100-year anniversary and hope that this data will enhance the Philmont experience for Boy Scouts for generations to come.”
