Abstract:

This study provides evidence of the influence of DTED resolution in regions with different terrain roughness on Army terrain data applications. The report documents results of the U.S. Army Topographic Engineering Centers DTED resolution analysis including extensive field work and terrain visualization undertaken to investigate DTED integrity in comparison to the actual terrain. Finally, the report offers conclusions regarding DTED support for Army tactical and simulation applications.
