National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

NGA Link

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is part of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and its primary mission is to collect, analyze, and distribute geospatial intelligence in support of national security. The NGA workforce is populated by professionals in such fields as aeronautical analysis, cartography, geospatial analysis, imagery analysis, marine analysis, the physical sciences, geodesy, and computer and telecommunication engineering, as well as those in national security and law enforcement.

IEA provides digital document conversion, document management, and graphical archiving support services to the NGA. These digitization services involve scanning images from microfilm and linking the images to the existing feature in the Geographic Names Database (GNDB). IEA is actively involved in performing digital microfilm conversion services to process unclassified/for official use only (FOUO) geographic names cards. Our team of qualified personnel established a digital library with the scanned images linked with the associated unique feature identifier (UFI) that exists in the current GNDB. The personnel provided by IEA perform all digital scanning services and provide complete imagery database administration with more than 10 million images stored in searchable electronic files. We have initiated several software modifications in order to improve the overall efficiency and quality of services.
