GEOINT

Theory

Geospacial intelligence (GEOINT) is intelligence by analyzing geospacial maps and images about the human activity. This part will present some tools to find and analyze geospacial information. These information could be useful during a Red Team to scout the target's location in order to find building entrances, monitored areas, etc.
