The purpose of this report is to describe the automated user-friendly programs produced by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Vicksburg, MS, which create the terrain-related inputs required by the Eagle model. The project was divided into three tasks. The first task involved modification of the mobility corridors MC network creation software in Terrain Evaluation Module TEM to compute the additional attributes required by the Eagle model and also to output the network in the format required by Eagle. Also, three methodologies are examined to discover the approach that will create the most complete MC network. The second task was to produce software to create the Eagle terrain tiles and output them in the proper format. Task three required the creation of software to generate a graphics image in X-Windows dump format for use as a background image by Eagle. These programs are described in terms of their input, methodology, and output.
