Using NIMA Limited Distribution Data & Products Using NIMA Limited Distribution Data & Products Many of NIMA’s data and products are Unclassified Limited Distribution (LIMDIS). These materials are used by the Department of Defense (DoD) and the US Military for military operations, exercises, and training. They can be used by DoD contractors only for a specific DoD contract. They cannot be shared with state and local government officials or foreign nationals without permission from NIMA. This reference provides information about policy and guidelines concerning the use of NIMA LIMDIS materials. LIMITED DISTRIBUTION : Products with this caveat and marking are UNCLASSIFIED imagery, maps, and data for which release or disclosure is limited to DoD and DoD contractors, and for national intelligence purposes, to the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI), non-DoD members of the Intelligence Community (IC), the National Security Council (NSC), and other Federal Government Departments and Agencies. Disclosure is defined as showing or discussing the product short of relinquishing physical control of it. Release is defined as providing or relinquishing control of the product in hard or softcopy. Neither disclosure nor release of LIMDIS products to unauthorized individuals or organizations is permissible. What makes NIMA data and products Limited Distribution? Sensitive, valuable information. LIMDIS data and products contain NIMA’s information edge, yet, if these materials were classified, their use and effectiveness in the field would be diminished. To balance protection and use, 10 USC 455 permits the protection of UNCLASSIFIED NIMA products as LIMDIS under the specific conditions defined above. NIMA products are categorized LIMDIS only if certain criteria are met, specifically: •If they contain materials from an international agreement that restricts disclosure to DoD officials, or for specified government purposes. Many governments provide materials that are only for DoD use. •If the materials in the product would reveal collection sources and methods, or capabilities used to produce these products. •If disclosing the materials would: jeopardize or interfere with ongoing military or intelligence operations; reveal military operational or contingency plans; or reveal, jeopardize, or compromise military or intelligence capabilities.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
