Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation (AGO), R4 Russell Offices, Russell Drive, Russell, ACT

To provide geospatial intelligence from imagery and other sources in support of Australia's defence and national interests.

The Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation (DIGO) was established under a Cabinet Directive on 8 November 2000 by amalgamating the Australian Imagery Organisation, the Directorate of Strategic Military Geographic Information and the Defence Topographic Agency.

On 2 December 2005, DIGO came under the provisions of the amended Intelligence Services Act 2001 (ISA).

DIGO was renamed the Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation (AGO) in 2013. Consequential amendments to the ISA were passed in 2014.

AGO operates from two sites: one in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, and the other in Bendigo, Victoria.
