Abstract : Rounding out the Defense Mapping Agency's (DMA) effort for a raster standard to complement the existing Vector Product Format and proposed Text Product Standard, the Raster Product Format (RPF), is the proposed format for accommodating raster data. The Naval Research Laboratory's Digital Mapping, Charting, and Analysis Program (DMAP) has been requested by DMA (via NO96) to establish the usefulness of such a standard for naval purposes. In its technical review, DMAP discusses the overall view of a raster standard and how the development of such a standard should proceed. The RPF, for example, should be modified to be compatible with already-existing standards. The suitability of RPF as it currently exists is also discussed by DMAP.
