The Inter-American Geodetic Survey (IAGS) was the most important Cold War project you’ve never heard of. Its mission was to map the vast uncharted regions of Latin America . . . and collect on-the-ground intelligence in the process. The IAGS school at Fort Clayton, Panama Canal Zone, educated thousands of Latin American senior officers, some famous, some infamous. Joining us are IAGS veteran Paul Hauser, author of Always Going Somewhere: Mapping in Latin America for the Inter American Geodetic Survey, and others who worked on the project and lived in the Canal Zone.
