The Military Computer Science Branch MCSB of the Advanced Computational and Information Sciences Directorate, Army Research Laboratory, has been developing concepts to provide enhanced information exchange on the battlefield as part of an on-going, long-term research effort known as the Information Distribution Technology IDT. Application programs were developed to test, evaluate, and demonstrate information distribution research concepts. As the IDT matured, new application programs were needed that could more readily address the information distribution concepts. Hence, a new suite of demonstration application programs was developed. Among these applications is the program XMap, a general purpose program for displaying topographical map information and other military symbols used in planning. This report focuses on the development and execution of XMap. MM
