handheld, or video imagery. They develop mensuration strategies, determine requirements, evaluate tools, and create customized methodologies and products to address a variety of geospatial intelligence problems.

GEOINT Analyst (Photogrammetry)—perform image assessment, point selection, mensuration, triangulation, orthorectification, and processing in order to produce standard and nonstandard image products. They increase the relative and absolute positioning accuracy of imagery from a variety of sensors to support mono and stereo exploitation. These analysts assess, evaluate, and extract elevation data from stereo imagery. They support both internal and external customers, review products produced by contractors and co-producers, and ensure that final products can be generated to meet customer’s stringent accuracy requirements.

GEOINT Analyst (Political Geography)—apply expertise in foreign languages and Romanization policies to research and analyze sources containing foreign geographic names information, make policy recommendations for the standardization of foreign geographic names, and populate and maintain the Geographic Names Database. They monitor their area of interest for administrative, political, and infrastructure changes to maintain professional currency. They advise the U.S. Board of Geographic Names and serve as staff members of the Secretariat for the U.S. Board of Geographic Names Foreign Names Committee.

GEOINT Analyst (Radar Image Science)—apply advanced techniques to determine the intelligence and geospatial information contained in radar data. They develop algorithms, evaluate tools, and create customized radar methodologies and products to address a variety of geospatial intelligence problems.

GEOINT Analyst (Regional Geography)—apply knowledge and expertise in physical, sociocultural, and political aspects of countries, regions, and urban areas to support national security goals, concerns, and strategies. They gather and evaluate regional source data to build geospatial data layers that serve as a foundation for analytic work. Analyzing these data, they characterize events, discover relationships and trends, infer conclusions, predict behaviors, and communicate these results as multisource geospatial intelligence in support of the intelligence community and the National System for Geospatial Intelligence.

GEOINT Analyst(Regional Source)—gather, assess, and evaluate source materials and ensure its quality and suitability to build foundational data. They conduct feasibility studies for the production of standard and specialty products. They maintain data integrity for various databases.

GEOINT Analyst (Requirements and lntegration—support the requirements, processes, and integration of future systems and methodologies. They coordinate with mission partners and customers to define requirements, evaluate, integrate, and transition to operations new technologies and associated functions.

GEOINT Analyst (Scientific Linguistics)—apply the principles of linguistics to problems encountered in the analysis and standardization of transliterated foreign geographic names. They collaborate with language experts at the national and international level to develop and implement consistent standardization policies. These analysts actively research country- and language-specific place-name issues and develop standardization policy recommendations for review and acceptance by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names Foreign Names Committee. They ensure the linguistic integrity of place-name intelligence developed by NGA on behalf of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names and the intelligence community.

GEOINT Analyst (Source Strategies)—collaborate with customers and source providers to develop comprehensive multi-INT, multisource strategies to address intelligence problems. They create tasking and dissemination requirements, adjudicate requirements, analyze and investigate collection performance, assess and report on end-to-end GEOINT system performance data, and advise customers in support of the National System for Geospatial Intelligence.

GEOINT Analyst (Spectral Image Science)—apply advanced techniques to determine the intelligence and geospatial information contained in the electro-optical region of the spectrum. This includes the exploitation
