Here is my second iteration of the National Security Agency's organization chart, which is now as up to date as possible, and includes a significant number of additions. I have also tried to organize the names of NSA databases and tools by function, and you can see the flow of where data comes from, what is, and can be, done with it once it resides inside the NSA's brain. I am not a visual artist, and I am certain that one of you can make this chart sing and shine in a way that I cannot.
