Abstract:

The U.S. Army has taken two critical steps designed to assure that the digital topographic data needs of our troops on the battlefield of the future are satisfied. The first step is to establish, in concert with the Defense Mapping Agency, standards and architectures for composition, use, and distribution of digital topographic data. The second step is to establish, within the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Labs USAETL, a group whose sole mission is to serve as the Armys center of technical expertise for all military applications of digital topographic data. This paper will discuss the details and significance of these events and how the future events and how the future Army will be affected by them. Author
