The recent development of the Terrain Information Extraction System TIES has provided the U.S. Army with an end-to-end digital photogrammetric mapping testbed. Using components developed by differing vendors, the system provides capabilities for scanning hardcopy imagery, photogrammetrically processing digitized or digital imagery and interacting with a geographic information system. The process of assembling the components of TIES into a single, functioning system, has raised a number of key issues and provided valuable lessons learned concerning internal data exchange, networking and quality control. These issues, discussed independently, are analyzed and reviewed from a systems perspective.
