The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is an agency of the federal government of the United States with the primary mission of collection, analysis, and distribution of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) in support of national security. NGA was formerly known as the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) and is part of the Department of Defense (DoD). In addition, NGA is a key component of the United States Intelligence Community.

NGA's headquarters are located in Bethesda, Maryland and operates major facilities in the Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., and St. Louis, Missouri areas as well as support and liaison offices worldwide. In 2011 NGA expects to consolidate many of its regional activities as part of the BRAC in a new campus near Ft. Belvoir in Fairfax County, Virginia, which, at 2.3 million square feet, will become the third-largest government building in the Washington Metropolitan Area, capable of holding the Statue of Liberty in its atrium. Its budget and number of employees are classified.

The NGA was credited by White House and military officials with providing critical information in support of Operation Neptune's Spear on May 2, 2011, in which the United States Military raided a secret compound housing Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, at which time he was killed-in-action.
