NGA Launches GEOINT App For First Responders on iTunes, Google Play

mobile appThe National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has launched a mobile application to the public via the iTunes and Google Play app stores in efforts to aid first responders during natural disasters.

NGA said Tuesday the Mobile Awareness GEOINT Environment app works to help users create geo-tagged field reports; take photos, videos and voice recordings; and share the reports and multimedia observations with team members.

MAGE is designed to accommodate the storage of geospatial data layers on mobile devices even when disconnected from the network, the agency noted.

NGA said MAGE, which was previously only available through the agency’s GEOINT App Store, can also be customized for law enforcement, security and military situations.

Ben Tuttle, NGA’s mobile apps team lead, said the agency released MAGE on iTunes and Google Play in efforts to support non-Defense Department users.
