National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

(3)The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency(1) (NGA), formerly the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) was established on October 1, 1996 to provide "timely, relevant and accurate geospatial intelligence in support of national security." The Agency is relied on by intelligence agencies in the Department of Defense to manage the disciplines of imagery and mapping, and contributes to the "high state of operational readiness of America's military forces."
The NGA has produced special unclassified reference graphics of Basrah, Al Mawsil (Mosul), Karkuk, Tikrit, Baghdad, Iraq and the Middle East. View the maps here(2) (or click the image).
