NGA Releases GEOINT App for Govt Users on Apple App Store, Google Play

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has launched its latest application on the Apple‘s App Store and the Google Play Store in an effort to help authorized government user access unclassified geospatial intelligence through mobile devices.

NGA said Friday its Tearline app is accessible to the intelligence community, Defense Department, allies and academic and private sector partners.

“As GEOINT shifts toward a more unclassified data future, NGA has an opportunity to tell more stories at the protected yet unclassified level,” said Chris Rasmussen, NGA’s public software development lead.

Rasmussen added Tearline is designed to address the commercialization of GEOINT and provide original content to senior agency officials.

He noted that users would need credentials to access the app.

Tearline was developed under NGA’s GEOINT Pathfinder project, which the agency said works to answer intelligence questions using commercially-available tools, data, information technology and services.
