This is one of those opportunities. We need imagery analysis volunteers who can work from home on your schedule to get this important project going. Please see the item below for additional background, a request for help, and contact information.<br /><br />After many years of effort, an arrangement is now in place to provide NGA imagery, via the State Department, to the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) to use in its gulag search and monitoring. D/NGA offers that these are the types of non-traditional relationships that NGA must get better at and supports the Association’s involvement.<br /><br /><u>AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP FIND AND MONITOR NORTH KOREAN GULAGS<br /></u><br />The Washington, D.C.-based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK), the only US think-tank dedicated exclusively to investigating and reporting on the North Korean human rights situation, has entered into an agreement with the US State Department to find and monitor gulags in NK through the acquisition of unclassified satellite imagery. NGA Director Robert Cardillo is involved with this project. HRNK will complement and support the IA findings with information gained in NK defector interviews and then publish the reports. The reports will be provided to the United Nations, UN member states, Congressional offices, NGA, as well as other US agencies, think-tanks, and academic institutions, and made public in an effort to build international pressure for reform. <br /><br />Greg Scarlatoiu, the Executive Director of HRNK, has long been working with an HRNK Senior Adviser and professional imagery analyst whom some of you know, Joe Bermudez. Mr. Bermudez has agreed to be HRNK's expert adviser on the project.<br /><br />There is an urgent need for volunteers with imagery analysis experience to participate in this important effort. NGAA leadership hopes that many of its members will offer to participate. The procedure will be for Joe Bermudez to send packets of data to each volunteer, along with pertinent instructions. The analysis can be done on the analyst’s computer at convenient times, with the results reported to Joe.<br /><br />Questions?

Joe Bermudez can be reached at 303-565-6207 and jsbermudez@gmail.com.<br /><br />We appreciate all help you can offer to this valuable effort.<br /><br /> <br />Best regards, Roy Combs<br />Chair, NGAA Board of Directors<br /><br /><br /><h3 align="center">INTERESTING LINKS<br />Lunar Mapping by Geointeresting |<br /> Free Listening on SoundCloud<br /><br /><br />This podcast was produced by an NGA contract team of professionals.

The draft Section 106 PA addresses the potential adverse effects on historic properties from the construction and operation of a new purpose-built NGA campus, known as Next NGA West, at one of four alternative locations in the greater St. Louis, Missouri, metropolitan area. NGA determined that the development of a PA, in accordance with Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations Section 800.14(b)(1)(ii), is warranted because the undertaking’s effects on historic properties cannot be determined prior to approval of the Preferred Alternative location, which has not been selected yet. NGA has developed the draft PA through consultation with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the Illinois State Historic Preservation Officer, the Missouri State Historic Preservation Officer, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Air Force, the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma, The Osage Nation, the City of St. Louis, St. Clair County, and other interested parties. The draft PA will be available for review by members of the public, who will be provided an opportunity to express their views on resolving potential adverse effects to historic properties that could result from the construction of the Next NGA West Campus.<br />The draft PA will be available for review at the following libraries:<br /><br />St. Louis County Library Meramec Valley Branch: 625 New Smizer Mill Road, Fenton MO 63026 • <br />O’Fallon Public Library: 120 Civic Plaza, O’Fallon, IL 62269 <br />St. Louis County Library Grant's View Branch: 9700 Musick Rd., St. Louis, MO 63123 <br />St. Louis Public Library Divoll Branch: 4234 N Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63107 <br /></h3><h3 align="left">Comment on the draft Section 106 PA from February 29, 2016, through March 21, 2016. <br /><br />The document also can be viewed at the following website: <a href="www.nextNGAwest.com">www.nextNGAwest.com</a><br />For questions concerning the draft PA, please contact Amy Snively at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District.  Written comments may be emailed to <a href="mailto:NextNGAwest@usace.army.mil">nextNGAwest@usace.army.mil</a> or mailed to:<br /></h3><h3 align="left">Next NGA West (N2W) <br />U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, Room 529<br />Attn: Amy Snively<br />601 E. 12th Street<br />Kansas City, MO 64016 <br /> <br /><br />Vector Communications<br />701 North 15th Street<br />Mailbox 43<br />St. Louis, MO 63103<br />(P) 314. 621.5566<br /><br />                                                         *******************************<br /></h3><h3 align="left"><br /></h3><h3 align="left">NGA Director Robert Cardillo recently addressed the Consumer Electronics Show (Government).  Read his remarks at:  <a href="https://www.nga.mil/MediaRoom/SpeechesRemarks/Pages/Consumer-Electronics-Show-Government.aspx">https://www.nga.mil/MediaRoom/SpeechesRemarks/Pages/Consumer-Electronics-Show-Government.aspx.</a></h3><p align="center">************************************<br /></p><h3 align="center"><span style="font-size: 14px;">PUBLIC RELEASE OF PERSONAL PAPERS</span><br /></h3><h3 align="left">NGAA recently received (late 2015) NGA guidance relative to the publication of personal papers, memoirs, etc. related to work conducted while an individual was employed by NGA (or its predecessor agencies).

Finnie, former technical director of the Aeronautical Chart and Information Center and Defense Mapping Agency, donated approximately 30 items from Finnie’s personal collection to NGA’s History Program.<br /><br />Included in the items is a collection of 23 moon photographs presented to Finnie by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in recognition of the assistance provided to NASA on its moon landing efforts by ACIC and DMA.<br /><br />The memorabilia was given to the agency by Thomas Finnie’s son William Finnie on behalf of the Finnie family.<br /><br />“We are incredibly proud of our dad and what he did for our country,” William Finnie said. <br /><br />WilliamFinnie said that previously the collection has been stored at home. “The history here is just incredible,” Finnie said. “I knew more people would be able to see these items at NGA.”<br /><br />The collection – which includes awards, acknowledgements, photographs, lithographs, certificates and more – will be catalogued and become part of historical exhibits at NCW and NCE in the coming months, said Gary Weir, NGA historian.<br /><br />“This collection documents a life that was integral to the agency,” Weir said. “Having these items here will help NGA better understand and tell the story of Thomas Finnie and NGA predecessor agencies ACIC and DMA.”<br /><br />Thomas Finnie served as technical director of ACIC from 1962-1972 and then served as director of management and technology for DMA from 1972-74. He was one of the initial eight Department of Defense planners who assisted the DMA director, Lt. Gen. Howard W. Penney, in organizing DMA in 1972.<br /><br />Finnie’s career with the U.S. government started in July 1937 with the Department of Agriculture. He then practiced engineering and surveying and served on the faculty at the University of Kentucky. As an army officer in World War II, Finnie commanded the 66th Engineer Topographic Company during several southwest Pacific campaigns.<br /><br />He retired from the federal government in 1974. In 2001, Finnie was inducted into the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) Hall of Fame. He passed away in 2003.<br /><br />Earlier this year, the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation renamed its lifetime achievement award, the Arthur C. Lundahl—Thomas C. Finnie Lifetime Achievement Award, to honor Finnie.<br /><br />Captions (Photos by Dick Fonner, NGA Office of Corporate Communications.):<br /><br /><a href="/xml/wfxdirect/res;jsessionid=2159082BAB0A3BAE778EE65BB212F386.TC1a?name=39415FinnieFamilyDonation..14-469%283%29.JPG&type=resource" wfxtype="resource" wfxsrc="39415FinnieFamilyDonation..14-469(3).JPG" target="_blank">Thomas Finnie’s collection</a> includes awards, photographs, certificates and more.<br /><br /><a href="/xml/wfxdirect/res;jsessionid=2159082BAB0A3BAE778EE65BB212F386.TC1a?name=39415FinnieFamilyDonation..14-469.JPG&type=resource" wfxtype="resource" wfxsrc="39415FinnieFamilyDonation..14-469.JPG" target="_blank">NASA presented 23 moon photographs</a> to Finnie in recognition for the assistance provided to NASA in its moon landing efforts by ACIC and DMA.
