This report documents the design process of an experimental 1100,000 topographic map. The map itself comprises Appendix B. The experimental map is designed for ground and air movement and is scaled to fill the gap between DMAs 150,000 and 1250,000 products. A NORDA study elicited the needs of the targeted users through direct questioning and a literature survey Appendix A. The design concept is pictorial and relies on an alternate terrain depiction method, Tanaka contours, the meet the disparate terrain analysis needs of air and ground users.
