That info includes maps, Geographic Information Systems data, aerial and satellite photos, video and even interactive games.

The FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Va., is in the market for a digital system to store and organize all of the information it gathers on potential terrorism targets, solicitation documents show.

That includes maps, Geographic Information Systems data, aerial and satellite photos, video and even interactive games, according to the solicitation.

Currently that information is spread out between DVDs, computer hard drives and portable hard drives, the bureau said. In addition to being centrally located, a digital repository might make the information more searchable too.

The data access management system is being developed as a “proof of concept system for consolidating, cataloging and distributing digital media content,” the bureau said. It may be looking to transfer more data into a digital form in the future.
