Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


VI.C.17. Digital Topographic Data (DTD) Standardization. Provide an effective architecture for assuring that digital topographic data (DTD) can be directly imported and processed by standardized Mapping, Charting, and Geodesy (MC&G) software to increase system interoperability in Army and/or joint operations. Develop written procedures for preparing MC&G software for submission to the Army Reuse Center. In FY97, populate DoD reuse libraries with common MC&G applications which require basic tools. Develop evaluation criteria which can be used to validate the effectiveness of standard DTD software across multiple systems.
