Abstract:

The Defense Mapping Agency DMA is undergoing revolutionary change in its method of operations. During the 1970s, the requirement for mapping, charting, and geodetic products changed swiftly from an emphasis on analog to digital products. These digital products are utilized by U.S. Department of Defense computer based planning, training, and weapons systems. In order to meet the increasing demand for these products, DMA has moved into an interactive computer production environment with a full scale development program to place DMA into a nearly all digital production environment in the 1990s. This paper presents the current state-of-the-art production environment within DMA, and describes the challenges to be met during the digital revolution.
