US: The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency launched a new public website that will allows users easy access to a host of information such as NGA mission partner items of interest, corporate information, career and student opportunities, as well as quick links to NGA’s social media presence.
The latest development is being seen as a major step towards implementing the agency’s goal of putting the power of GEOINT in the users’ hands. During the next few months, NGA plans to develop the website further by providing a customisable interface and a GEOINT application marketplace. The eventual goal is to provide a single access point for NGA’s unclassified geospatial information, critical to a wide spectrum of GEOINT consumers.
“We’ve designed this website with the public and partners in mind,” said NGA Director Letitia Long. “NGA wants to make it easy for the public to understand who we are and for our mission partners to have a single location for unclassified geospatial and safety of navigation data to do their jobs every day or for use during a crisis.”
