Operational Concept Document for the Mapping and Graphic Information Capability (MAGIC)
JOINT DATA SYSTEMS SUPPORT CENTER WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
This Operational Concept Document OCD describes the mission of MAGIC and its operational and support environments. It also describes the functions and characteristics of the computer system within the overall system. The MAGIC effort has evolved from and will build upon the modernization of the WWMCCS standard host-based Graphic Information Presentation System GIPSY and the Z-248 PC-based modernized GIPSYmate system. Designed and developed to meet the needs of a new generation of Worldwide Military Command and Control System WWMCCS users, MAGIC will be fielded as a resident system on the WWMCCS workstation WWS and will present a menu-based graphical user interface GUI to the user that integrates as transparently as feasible the Commercial Off- the-Shelf COTS packages also resident on that platform. Processing facilities appropriate to both sophisticated and novice users will be supported as well as the ability to access the full range of database types found on the WWMCCS host H6000. Functionally, the MAGIC user will have the capability to perform data retrieval and manipulation operations, business graphics displays, geographic and geodetic mapping displays, slide show generation, and graphic editing operations.
