The Consolidated Environmental Resource Data Information Process CERDIP is a method for the United States U.S. Department of Defense DoD to raise awareness of the existence and importance of cultural, historic and natural CHN resource sites located worldwide. This awareness will improve the ability of warfighters to enhance the stability and security of threatened societies, to plan operational missions, to comply with the laws of war and international agreements during the conduct of those missions, to conduct engagement events with the militaries of other sovereign States, and to interact with Other Governmental Agencies, Inter-Governmental Organizations, and Non-Governmental Organizations. Geospatial data aggregated by the CERDIP will work seamlessly with standard DoD geospatial information system GIS platforms. The data can be configured for use by user-friendly commercially-available off the shelf COTS software tools to communicate the data via the internet. This document outlines the steps in executing the CERDIP to ensure the process can be executed consistently by various users and that the resulting data layers continue to build upon each effort for a continually growing coverage of the globe.
