US aid agency to enlist satellites to boost development
from Agence France Presse
The U.S. Agency for International Development plans to combine satellite imagery with on-the-ground surveys to better fight food shortages and other problems in developing countries, a report said. USAID will set up a Geospatial Intelligence Center, or GeoCenter, before the end of the year to promote a better use of development funds, said Nextgov.com, which covers the management of information technology in the U.S. government.
