The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is a unique combination of intelligence and combat support agencies. As a world leader in timely, relevant, accurate and actionable geospatial intelligence, it enables the U.S. intelligence community and the Department of Defense to fulfill the President’s national security priorities to protect the nation.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) is a science organization that provides impartial information on the health of our ecosystems and environment, the natural hazards that threaten us, the natural resources we rely on, the impacts of climate and land-use change, and the core science systems that help us provide timely, relevant, and useable information. By integrating diverse scientific expertise, the USGS is able to understand complex natural science phenomena and provide scientific products that lead to solutions.

The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) is the only organization dedicated to promoting the geospatial intelligence tradecraft and building a stronger community of interest across industry, academia, government, professional organizations and individual stakeholders. The USC Spatial Sciences Institute is a member of the USGIF, which has accredited the USC Graduate Certificate of Geospatial Intelligence.

Through its innovative interdisciplinary academic programs and research approaches, USC Spatial Sciences Institute (SSI) uses spatial and location data approaches to solve global challenges, linking new knowledge, tools, and analyses that break through barriers and produce outcomes that improve the environment, health, and well-being.
