Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

NASA contracts with Google for access to images, data

Google soon will index content from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Content indexed will include three-dimensional maps of the moon and Mars, and real-time tracking of the International Space Station and space shuttle and will “allow every American to experience a virtual flight over the surface of the moon or through the canyons of Mars,” according to NASA Administrator Michael Griffin.

Future endeavors will apply Google’s search features to scientific data.
