Federal 100: Raymond Bauer

Name: Raymond Bauer
Title: Innovation Lead
Agency: National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

There's an app for that. NGA had a busy year of responding to global disasters, and Bauer helped the cause with GeoQ, an application that collates geospatial data for disaster relief and recovery efforts. Operating without a designated budget, he and his colleagues used open-source code to build GeoQ; Bauer is believed to be the first at NGA to use GitHub's crowdsourcing capability for a formal agency project. GeoQ supported more than a dozen NGA missions in 2015, including the response to the Nepal earthquake, and Bauer has pitched the app to other organizations, including the Peace Corps and Doctors Without Borders.
