Overview Edit

The National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) was established in 1996[1] to manage imagery processing and dissemination previously undertaken by a number of separate agencies. NIMA provided timely, relevant and accurate imagery, imagery intelligence and geospatial information in support of national security objectives.

NIMA was renamed the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) by the FY2004 Defense Authorization Act.[2]
