NGA Seeks to Secure Athletes, Audience at Rio Olympics Via Online Maps

GeocodingThe National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has created maps of hotels, transportation system and other venues in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, designed to help security personnel ensure the safety of audience and athletes at the 2016 Olympic Games.

The State Department asked NGA’s disaster analysis and domestic support team analysts to develop digital and hardcopy informational materials to coordinate and facilitate transportation of world leaders and athletes during the event, NGA said Monday.

Some of those materials include an online map of venue areas with a slider tool that shows the schedule of Olympic events as well as a regional atlas of Rio de Janeiro.

NGA analysts will also collaborate with other U.S. agencies and the government of Brazil to track activities that could have an impact on U.S. citizens in Brazil through the State Department-led joint operations center.
