National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency: Mapping Africa one country at a time

Lt. Col. Jay McNeil plays the role of brigade chief of staff for the Command Post Exercise during African Lion 2012's simulated civil disturbance. Essential to the team are highly detailed maps created by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency during AL-12 in the Kingdom of Morocco. The 10-day exercise includes 800 Marines from Marine Forces Africa, 400 reservists from the Army National Guard in Utah and 900 Moroccan military. Two geospatial analysts from the NGA in Stuttgart, Germany, along with a geospatial analyst from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit are part of the exercise and have created hundreds of maps of terrain routes for ground troops, restricted zones for pilots, and coastline and ports for the MEU.
