In 2008, the Army Geospatial Enterprise was created as an integrated system of technologies, standards and processes that provides a comprehensive data, information and services that enables the Army's full spectrum operations. The AGC Geospatial Acquisition Support Directorate Architecture Team was charged with developng the Army Geosiatial Enterprise Architecture to provide support to the Army Acquisition Community to implement the Army Geospatial Enterprise.

The Geospatial Information Officer position, which serves as the Army's central manager, responsible for all Army policies and standardization requirements for the Army Geospatial Enterprise, was also established in 2008.

The Geospatial Enterprise Governance Board was the third prong established in 2008. This decision making body addresses issues brought up by the Army Geospatial Enterprise  in shaping the current and future forces. The board serves as the Army's central manager for geospatial information and services and is responsible for coordinating, assessing and synchronizing policies and requirements.

In 2009, The Army Geospatial Center organized as a major subordinate command center under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to suppor tthe Army's LandWarNet/Battle Command systems, as well as facilitate dissemination of relevant geospatial information to every echelon throughout the battlefiled environment. 

In 2014, Army Geospatial Center, with support from the Geospatial Research Laboratory, launched a test bed to accelerate research and development to programs of record. This innovative enterprise gives developers an environment where systems could interact with fielded systems to improve planning, testing and fielding. 

Today, Gary Blohm serves as the director for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Geospatial Center, Research Laboratory, and as part of Army staff as its Geospatial Officer. Army Geospatial Center leads the development and integration of the Army Geospatial Enterprise to enable systems within Programs of Record; lends Geospatial Intelligence expertise to develop and field tools for optimize location data; and, provides geospatial products, data and training for an array of military operations.
