For NGA, key to open source might be embracing uncertainty
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has made a point of hitching its operations to the recent boom in open source data. The intelligence community's mapping agency has in the last few months released a software toolkit for crowdsourcing on GitHub and created a website for sharing unclassified information on the Arctic, for example. With that work in full swing, the next step for the agency's push to leverage open source information could be philosophical rather than technical.
