Abstract:

Seven prototype military geographic intelligence MGI products, specifically designed to meet the terrain intelligence needs of an airmobile division in a tactical situation, were developed. The development included five steps compilation of conceptual models relating the terrain to certain tactical activities identification of significant terrain factors and assignment of class ranges of their values on the basis of the requirements of the models construction of factor maps of the selected study area on the basis of the selected terrain factor classes compilation of a factor complex map for each desired MGI product and transformation of the factor complex maps to performance prediction maps, which were the desired end product.
