NGA Ebola Open Data


If the NGA actually cared about the Ebola Crisis in Africa they would respond to e-mails/ FOIAs about questions the public, and other governement agencies (yes, they actually do not respond to people from the USGS, DOI, STATE DEPT, ETC.) have about the data they are supplying.  Instead, they don’t know how to use the reply button in their e-mail software.  They also deny all FOIAs.


Thanks for nothing…

Keep up the hard work NGA…
