NGA Develops Web-Based Geospatial Data Sharing Platform; Robert Cardillo Comments

Robert Cardillo

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has introduced an online platform designed to help users collaborate and share unclassified data for geospatial technology development efforts.

NGA said Monday it developed GEOWorks for organizations and individuals to collectively develop tools and services within a data science environment.

“Any U.S. company – large or small – or academic institution – or interested individual – can gain access to our data and tools – and build something,” NGA Director Robert Cardillo, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, told his audience during a keynote speech at the 2018 GEOINT Symposium.

Andy Spage, project manager of GEOWorks, said the new website also serves as a means to connect users to challenge-type contests and offer data tools to government agencies.

Persons who have a login.gov account can use the platform.
