Find Pirates From Your Couch

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is in your local mobile app store and on GitHub. With NGA’s apps you can find pirates from your couch and access geospatial information even when you don’t have a network connection. And, with the source code for these apps on GitHub, you can help make these projects even better. Our goal is to increase the impact of government investments and take things in new directions. Got an innovative geospatial-flavored mobile app of your own? We’re all ears. We even have a program to pay you for it. NGA is the nation's primary source of geospatial intelligence, or GEOINT.
