Abstract : This report is an evaluation of the Field Exploitation of Elevation Data (FEED) as it relates to the expressed objectives. Software and hardware were considered. The task of the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories (USAETL) is to develop topographic and terrain analysis products to support the functions of the Field Army. Concurrently, USAETL must evaluate and determine the form in which these products can evolve to the battlefield. The 1980-1984 Department of the Army Consolidated Topographic Support Program (DACONTSP) had expressed an interest in automated topographic support capabilities to rapidly produce terrain-related cartographic products. It is within this environment that the FEED system has been developed.
