The Engineer Topographic Lab recently completed a study which assessed the digital topographic data DTD needs of the US Army, The overall objective was to define Army DTD requirements for the Defense Mapping Agency DMA in order to allow them to consolidate their work efforts and to plan their future production requirements. Both subjective and analytical evaluations were performed using two DMA prototype data sets, with investigations focused on the data sets abilities to support tactical terrain analysis, the analysis community, and existing and emerging Army systemsprograms covering tactical, combat modeling, simulation, training, testing, and developmental applications. In addition, the existing or anticipated DTD requirements of Army systems, or programs were documented, summarized and evaluated. These DTD requirements were defined and evaluated in terms of data content, accuracy, resolution, and format. A data base specification for DTD was prepared to provide a total Army requirement for DTD.
