"This manual describes the basic principles of the Military Grid Reference System and the non-standard reference systems. It describes the method for determining references on maps and charts at scales of 1:1,000,000 and larger. It contains identifications for the grid zone designations and for the 100,000 meter squares of the Universal Transverse Mercator Grid and the Universal Polar Steriographic Grid. It also contains the specifications and grid identifications for the various non-standard grids. It provides diagrams and textual information for delineating geodetic datums and ellipsoids." Datums, Ellipsoids, Grids, and Grid Reference Systems


"Hence the major effect of the Panopticon: to induce in the inmate a state of conscious and permanent visibility that assures the automatic functioning of power. So to arrange things that the surveillance is permanent in its effects, even if it is discontinuous in its action; that the perfection of power should tend to render its actual exercise unnecessary; that this architectural apparatus should be a machine for creating and sustaining a power relation independent of the person who exercises it; in short, that the inmates should be caught up in a power situation of which they are themselves the bearers." Michel Foucault on Panopticism


"A sparsely attended trial which unfolded in Tacoma�s US district courthouse the first week of April 2001 hardly seemed an event that might open a small but revealing view onto the shifting national security apparatus. But to outside observers following the criminal prosecution of Washington State resident Jim Bell, accused of stalking and intimidating local agents of the IRS, Treasury Department and BATF, the defendant was a symptomatic target, and the government�s stated case against him only a fragment of a more complex campaign linked to the evolving landscape of national and homeland defense.

In the government�s estimation, Bell had placed its Pacific Northwest agents "in reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury". But for some trial-watchers, the case against James Dalton Bell, 43, was underpinned by a constellation of factors that made him more than the disaffected neighbor projecting antigovernment bile. Bell had invited the government�s fullest prosecutorial zeal because his technical skills placed him in more ambiguous terrain, that of untested gray zones within emerging national defense landscapes, which, by calling into question the impregnability of the national border, have been taking national security tactics incountry in unprecedented ways, deploying new rules of engagement to challenge national security threats within the US domestic interior." Deborah Natsios, Homeland Defense and the Prosecution of Jim Bell

"The National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) has been quietly scanning Mars pictures, looking for the Mars Polar Lander since early December 1999. According to a source close to the NIMA effort, photographic specialists at NIMA think they�ve spotted something." NIMA Spots Lost Lander?

"My entire website http://www.mbr-pwrc.usgs.gov/geotech/ has now been removed from the internet. This represents about 3 years worth of work and 20,000 plus maps showing bird, mammal and amphibian distributions, satellite imagery, landcover and vegetation maps for countries and protected areas all around of the globe." Ian Thomas, Former Mapping Specialist,GIS & Remote Sensing Unit,Patuxent Wildlife Research Center

"Classes of aerial photography are: (1) Intelligence. Aerial photographic information of terrain, activities, or installations. (2) Mapping and charting. Aerial photographs used in the compilation and correction of topographic and planimetric maps, photomaps, models, aeronautical and hydrographic charts of all types. (3) Bombardment. Orientation photography of terrain at time of bombing release and bomb impact photography to show location of bomb bursts with respect to target."
Aerial Photography, Field Manual (1944)

"The S2 clicks on the zoom button and the enemy element is quickly portrayed in a high-fidelity, three-dimensional (3D) virtual rendition of the battlespace 50 km ahead. The high-resolution view of the terrain indicates a small valley through which the enemy will have to move perfect killing ground."

Cartome, a companion site to Cryptome, is an archive of news and spatial / geographic documents on privacy, cryptography, dual-use technologies, national security and intelligence -- communicated by imagery systems: cartography, photography, photogrammetry, steganography, camouflage, maps, images, drawings, charts, diagrams, IMINT and their reverse-panopticon and counter-deception potential. Cartome will employ technologies to minimize image file size, and these rapidly developing technologies themselves will be covered.
