The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has published a gamification software code on its official GitHub account.

Released earlier this month, the standalone application works to generate badges and awards for users based on the context of their performance, NGA said Oct. 14.

NGA also built the open source code to integrate with other Web applications to help end-users perform tasks and increase outputs.

“The current generation of professionals is discovering the collaborative learning power of using games in standard business practices, and the newer generation is already familiar with how these new technologies are powerful learning tools,” said Robert Cardillo, NGA director.

Ray Bauer, an NGA information technology innovation lead, said the software code displays badges through a Web interface and translates user performance into awards with a rules engine.
