U.S. Department of Defense interested in Microsoft Virtual Earth

Posted on Monday, May 15 2006 @ 09:17:45 CEST by

Microsoft and the U.S. Department of Defense agency are working together on improving the Virtual Earth mapping program for military and non-military purposes.
Microsoft signed a letter of understanding with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), which is a "Department of Defense combat support agency," the company said.

Microsoft and NGA will use Virtual Earth, part of Microsoft’s Windows Live, for tasks such as guiding relief efforts for natural disasters. The program was used during Hurricane Katrina last year to direct first responders and government branches, Microsoft said.
