A process for generating fly-around boundaries for use by projectiles such as missiles or the like which facilitates the steps of providing original cartographic data representative of at least one geographical position on a landmass and providing a predetermined value for the spacing of a fly-around boundary from the geographical position digitizing the original data and creating a landmass model in a format which includes latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates of the geographical position inputting the digitized data and the predetermined value into a data analyzer generating new data representative of the fly-around boundary using the data analyzer based on the predetermined value and the land mass model, preferably by offsetting fly-around segments from the landmass model a distance equal to the predetermined value and providing a navigational control for receiving the new data and using the new data for controlling the flight path of the missile along the boundary.
