Mission enhancing GEOINT Visualization & Access services available Spring 2007

Vision egeoint what
Vision - eGEOINT - What

  • To satisfy the mission needs of its partners, the vision for NGA includes being the premier online, on-demand geospatial data, information and knowledge service provider.

    • This service should provide global access to seamless content, related products and access to experts - whether from NGA or from its business counterparts around the world.

    • requires a new business perspective.

    • is more than a technology shift for NGA.

  • Benefits:

    • User focused - internally and externally

    • Accelerates time to knowledge for all analysts and end users

    • Geospatially enables data and decision-making

    • Provides a GEOINT foundation for the NSG

As a combat support agency, NGA’s aim should be to increase our

partners’ capacity for independent action.

  • Access

    • GEOINT Web Services (OGC)

    • Enterprise ArcSDE

      • Application ready data

    • Enterprise ArcIMS

    • Top Drawer (‘non-standard data’)

    • SOA Infrastructure

      • Registry, ESB, Monitoring

  • GEOINT Visualization

    • 3d = Google Earth, ESRI AGX

    • 2d = NGA Palanterra, NGA Earth

    • Other clients via OGC Web Service interfaces
