Abstract:

ARC Digitized Raster Graphics ADRG are digitized replicas of hard copy source maps and charts that the Defense Mapping Agency produces on CD- ROMCompact Disc-Read Only Material for distribution. The ADRG process converts the hard copy source, datum, and projection to WGS84 and the Equal ARC-Second Raster ChartMap ARC projection which permits a worldwide seamless data base for map data of a given scale. Products currently available are Operational Navigation Charts ONC at 11,000,000, Tactical Pilotage Charts TPC at 1500,000, Joint Operations Graphics JOG at 1250,000, Topographic Line Maps TLM at 150,000 and Jet Navigation Charts at 12,000,000. Many are available for public sale. ADRG data is best suited for use as raster background images for GIS Geographic Information System applications. Within DoD, ADRG currently supports the Navys AV8B program and the Armys Maneuver Control System.
