This thesis is an exploration of the concepts of data integration with respect to military operations. It is an attempt to establish practices that analysts and operators can use to integrate many types of data from disparate sources. The project focuses on two software platforms: Palantir Technologies and Google Earth. These specific programs are utilized because they provide off-the-shelf products that are easy to use, require little training, and are compatible with each other. Using these software packages, we attempt to integrate data with geospatial, temporal and relational data in order to gain greater understanding and insight into complex problems.
