Abstract : The Harpoon Weapon System (HWS) is an all-weather, over-the-horizon, antiship missile deployed on U.S. Navy vessels and aircraft. Shipborne versions of the HWS are comprised of the Harpoon missile, missile launchers, and the Harpoon Ship Command-Launch Control System (HSCLCS). In order the add the capability to display geographic information on the HSCLCS, the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has developed databases and retrieval/display algorithms for both vector shoreline data and gridded landmask data. The shoreline database used is a thinned and compressed version of the Defense Mapping Agency's (DMA) World Vector Shoreline (WVS). The landmask database is a 1 -minute grid of land/ water values derived from the WVS. Extensive quality control procedures, including paper plots of the entire world and workstation display of all shoreline regions, has ensured that the two databases are in agreement and that the data are correct....
