What In The World is NGA?

Calling all map geeks and data nerds. We're opening up for a look at a day in the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. What's NGA? Basically, anyone who navigates with a cellphone relies on us. Staff will discuss working on complex intel questions in our new unclassified lab, providing disaster relief support (and making that data publicly available) in world crises like the Ebola outbreak and Nepal earthquake, as well as some of the cool tech being developed by our R&D team. Want to get involved? We'll show you what we're sharing on GitHub and what areas we are hiring in. NGA is the nation's primary source of geospatial intelligence, or GEOINT.
