Insufficient unclassified HR3D geospatial information also limits the ability of the U.S. to adequately engage other nations in expanding their capabilities and working towards a sustainable, secure environment. The AGC program will address this critical gap for high-resolution mapping products covering the majority of the undeveloped world.
