Abstract:

This report provides a general overview of the Defense Mapping Agencys DMA digital World Vector Shoreline WVS database. Topics that will be covered include the WVS data structure and format, content, methods of accessing the database for both simple and more complex applications, current and future Naval applications of WVS, suggested future additions to the database, and recommended user-oriented software to be developed. The WVS data structure and content were designed to meet Naval requirements for digital global shoreline map, as outlined by the Oceanographer of the Navy CNO OP-006 in memo number 006C50322906, dated 5 August 1985. Applications and further suggestions are based on responses to a 19 questionnaire prepared by NORDA to survey DoD users who evaluated a WVS prototype of the Mediterranean Sea area. NORDAs compilation of Navy feedback to DMAs WVS prototyping effort was requested by the CNO OP-006.
