Abstract : The Naval Research Laboratory conducted an extensive in-person survey of the Navy and Marine Corps modeling and simulation (M&S) community's digital Mapping, Charting, and Geodesy (dMC&G) and value-added data requirements during late 1992 and early 1993. Simultaneously, the Air Force, the Army, and the National Security Agency (NSA) conducted similar studies for their respective services/agencies. Over 100 programs responded to this Navy study. This report presents an analysis of the collected requirements and emphasizes identifying feature, attribute, and value-added information that the M&S community requires but that is currently not available. Attention is given to required modifications to existing DMA dMC&G products. This report seeks to identify modifications to emerging and existing DMA products needed for optimum use by the Navy M&S community, and focuses only on the changes and improvements. (MM)
