The Mapmaker’s Craft : A History of Cartography at CIA — Central Intelligence Agency
Et maintenant, les amis, we speak ! Grâce à l’excellente Françoise Bahoken (▻http://www.scoop.it/t/analyse-des-matrices-de-flux) qui a exhumé cet article on découvre cette carte ébouriffante. La CIA sait aussi faire des cartes en plus du reste.
Tracing its roots to October 1941, CIA’s Cartography Center has a long, proud history of service to the Intelligence Community (IC) and continues to respond to a variety of finished intelligence map requirements. The mission of the Cartography Center is to provide a full range of maps, geographic analysis, and research in support of the Agency, the White House, senior policymakers, and the IC at large. Its chief objectives are to analyze geospatial information, extract intelligence-related geodata, and present the information visually in creative and effective ways for maximum understanding by intelligence consumers.
Since 1941, the Cartography Center maps have told the stories of post-WWII reconstruction, the Suez crisis, the Cuban Missile crisis, the Falklands War, and many other important events in history.
