The Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation (AGO) is an Australian government intelligence agency that is part of the Department of Defence responsible for the collection, analysis, and distribution of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT).


The Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation (DIGO) was created on 28 November 1982, by amalgamating the Canberra-based Australian Imagery Organisation and Directorate of Strategic Military Geographic Information, and the Bendigo-based Defence Topographic Agency (now called the Geospatial Analysis Centre). DIGO was part of the Australian Department of Defence.

DIGO was renamed Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation on 3 May 2013.[1]
