A leading global force for attaining and analyzing geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is navigating the intricacies of a rapidly-changing environment.
The intelligence community faces a variety of challenges as data sources multiply and technology changes the way information is collected and analyzed. In an effort to better partner with the private sector, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has recently unveiled a new data sharing service, GeoWorks, to promote greater collaboration. Ms. Monaco will discuss how the agency will to continue add datasets, tools and challenges to this collaborative data-sharing platform and promote greater interaction with agency partners. She will explain how U.S. organizations can use some of NGA’s unclassified data to build algorithms, participate in hackathons and compete in challenges, all with the goal of solving hard problem sets and identifying transferable tools or techniques.
